Learning doesn’t have to take a break when your child comes home from his or her day care. Many learning activities are fun, engaging, and educational that can be done at home. The best part is that these activities don’t have to feel like going to class.
And if your child has been following a STEAM-integrated curriculum like the one we follow in our very own preschool in Florida, Cub Academy, you will find that doing these activities is no different.
A STEAM curriculum as a key aspect in a child care in Orlando, Florida can help children develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills as early as possible in preparation for a career in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
Here are some activities that you can try at home that supports STEAM learning:
