STEM PROFILE focus during 2019 – 2020

The Spark! Discovery Preschool STEM Profiles are traits/qualities we want to develop in our preschoolers and work to model as adults in the learning environment. They are the essence of what we believe STEM programming promotes in the education of the whole child, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional, and social growth through the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and 21st century learning. We’d welcome your help with reinforcing them at home so these become second nature for children.
