Details: Calling all 4-Year-Old Explorers! The Margaret A. Wilby School for Early Learning encourages children to build out their curiosity and to wonder at the world around them. We give children the right strategies and the right road map to reach their highest potential in a safe, nurturing environment.
The program offers a harmonious balance between STEAM-focused, inquiry based experiences, and connections to the natural world. Enriching academics, arts, environmental, STEAM-based experiences best prepare children to flourish as leaders and learners.
Our students learn important foundational academic skills while spending as much time outside as possible learning about the environment.
Chapin encourages joyful learning and exploration! As studies show, "Essentially, humor activates our sense of wonder, which is where learning begins..." A quick fit of giggles while learning actually helps our brains remember!
Connections are made across the curriculum and our young students learn concepts of coding, engineering, physics, applied math skills, and artistic expression in our STEAM workshop, developed specifically for the needs of pre kindergarten, kindergarten, and first-grade students.
Beginning in September, the program will be year-round and run from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For more information, go to www.chapinschool.org/explorers.
