Our summer preschool STEM program: Peep and the Big Wide World
The PEEP science enrichment curriculum invites preschoolers to investigate their world by exploring ramps, shadows, color, sounds, and liquids. Children will share ideas in a group, explore and gather information through hands-on play, draw and write about their findings, and come together as a group to reflect upon what they learned. Light tables, flashlights, constructing materials, water play, funnels, paints, and more will encourage curiosity and lead to joyful discovery!

Give your preschooler’s early literacy skills a boost! This new and exciting small-group program for preschoolers teaches early literacy skills through a combination of direct instruction and hands-on play. Specific skills targeted include letter identification, letter sounds, phonological awareness (rhyming and sound segmenting) and an introduction to sight words. The program director and instructor, Melissa Breen, holds a masters degree in education as well as state teacher certifications in early childhood, elementary and special education. She utilizes a multi-sensory teaching approach that engages all learning styles and produces results. Some of these teaching strategies include incorporating the manual alphabet (sign language), movement and music, and sensory activities such as play dough, sand, and water. Children will have fun while learning and will develop confidence in their early reading and writing skills!
Each child will be given a Literacy Bag to bring home. This should be brought to class each week. The bag will hold provided materials to help continue learning at home (sight word rings, handouts with game instructions, song lyrics, etc.) Following each class, caregivers will be invited into the classroom to learn about what we did during our time together and about the materials being sent home that week.
Mondays 1:30 – 3:00 pm, November 12 th to December 17 th
