Courses

Course

Developmentally appropriate preschool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) experiences give young children opportunities to develop divergent thinking, problem solving, and cause and effect. Experiences have great potential to affect brain development during the crucial early childhood window of opportunity.

Course

Going beyond counting and using numbers is important for preschool children. Geometry, spatial relations and shape, processes and developmental stages of measurement, and how preschoolers develop understanding of classifying, graphing, and patterning are explored. Classroom tasks with instructions are given.

Course

Children use their senses to explore the world. More than just seeing or noticing, through science, children can determine how important or unimportant an observation is. Enrich the sensory table, beyond digging and pouring. Build an “Observation Station” with simple, sensory-rich explorations preschoolers will love.

  • Course

    Experience a variety of counting activities and developmentally appropriate approaches for teaching addition and subtraction. Explore principles, objectives, and developmental stages of counting and examine ways to support children’s counting in everyday situations. Number and operations tasks for preschoolers are provided.

  • Course

    Explore math in an early childhood setting and see how mathematical concepts develop from simple to complex. Identify five math content areas and gain strategies for integrating concepts in a way that will engage preschool children all day. Connect math concepts to literacy in a math-rich environment in the classroom.
