alt=""Tuesdays in October

Science Sprouts is a weekly science enrichment program designed especially for infants, toddlers and their families. At an early age, infants and toddlers have the ability to explore and observe the world around them. Infants and toddlers are natural scientists, and Science Sprouts is a time for them to explore, experiment, and build skills ranging from physical development to social emotional development. Every week we will practice the skills of exploring, hypothesizing, testing, and sharing results. Science Sprouts offers an opportunity for hands-on science exploration in a supportive, community-oriented environment. 

This month in Science Sprouts we are going to explore environmental science – the study of our natural world! Many studies show that early environmental education benefits children’s emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development. Through a blend of hands-on activities, engaging experiments, and captivating storytelling, children embark on a journey to discover the wonders of the natural world around them. The program curriculum is carefully crafted to align with early childhood development principles while instilling key concepts of environmental science. Tailored for children aged 0 to 3, this program ignites curiosity, fosters a love for nature, and cultivates a sense of responsibility towards the environment.

A robust body of research shows that the first three years are the most sensitive period for brain development. There are many early childhood education programs, but few of them take into account the unique developmental needs of infants and toddlers; sometimes called “sensory-motor learners.” By providing a program designed SPECIFICALLY for infants toddlers, we recognize that this is an essential time of development that requires unique tools and teaching.

Hands-on activities may include:

  • Singing songs about recycling and conservation
  • Taking a guided nature walk through the WonderGarden
  • Participating in an experiment that demonstrates the concept of water filtration
