STEAM for Preschoolers

IDEA Lab programs ensure an early start to success and productivity through classes such as I Can CookTM, Coding with BotsTM, Jr. scientists and more.

IDEA Lab Kids fosters a STEAM Mindset

With cool and exciting classes specially designed for the preschool crowd, critical-thinking skills are fostered at an early age

Creative classes encourage Inquiry-Based Learning

Creativity through exploration and critical-thinking skills

STEAM education translates to success in reading and comprehension

If there is one thing that all children love to do, it’s asking questions about everything they see, hear, and feel.  Age-appropriate hands-on science provides a mind rocking positive learning experience. Come start the journey where Curiosity and Imagination leads the way!

Bring out the Inner Artist with cool, exciting and FUN Artrageous Preschool art exploration classes Hands on projects, messy and creative art, curiosity-driven projects leads the way for the Preschool set.

Our nature investigators will learn everything from how birds fly to how alligators crawl! and what makes this pretty amazing is that the Idea Lab Preschoolers will be so busy having fun, they won’t even realize they are learning!

Hmmm… Teaching Technology to the Preschool crowd.  Who says they are too young? At IDEA Lab Kids, we are the pioneers for teaching Coding with Bots, Robotics and Lil’ Engineering to our young Preschoolers.  Classes are designed to engage, explore and develop the skills of the preschool crowd.

Culinary School for Pre-Schoolers?  Only at IDEA Lab Kids will you find our preschoolers learning to measure, and learn their science and math skills all while kneading, rolling and chopping. 

Let’s get a head-start on fun in the kitchen!

Again… where else but at IDEA Lab Kids will you find the Preschool Cool Coders having fun learning to code with their Robotic friends and starting their journey towards a lifetime of skills.  Early learners develop fine motor skills and develop hand-eye coordination as a bonus!

The [STEM + Arts = STEAM] Difference

[STEM + Arts = STEAM]TM  = FUN with all CAPS!

Yes we are great at teaching.  We know.. But did you realize that IDEA Lab Kids sets Early Childhood learning apart with a fun hands-on environment that also allows the Preschoolers to pique their curiosity? IDEA Lab Kids Pre School [STEM + Arts = STEAM]TM Curriculum is designed to give students a hands-on approach to early STEAM Learning. IDEA Lab Kids youngest learners learn big concepts that are catered to their ever-changing and growing minds.

We are #RockingTheGreyMatter with our Preschoolers.

What to Expect

Our Preschool [STEM + Arts = STEAM] classes run in blocks of 45 minutes.  Classes start with the What in the World PowWow to get preschoolers engaged in the fun hands-on [STEM + Arts = STEAM] learning.

Each IDEA Lab Kids [STEM + Arts = STEAM] Preschool class lasts for 45 minutes and encompasses gross motor skill development as well as cognitive and language skill development. Pre Schoolers at the Lab not only learn fun educational concepts but foster social development skills as well.

A window into the Classroom

Each IDEA Lab Kids [STEM + Arts = STEAM] Preschool class starts with a What in the World PowWow 

Class facilitator engages the group by showing the object of the day and asking a question such as..  Where do you think this came from? In the chorus of answers the class facilitator passes it around the group and allows them to touch and feel the object.  The facilitator takes the answers and leads the discussion on why, what and where.. This allows the Preschool brains to stretch and grow while they ponder on the possibilities…

The discussion leads to  how the project for the day relates to the object at hand and how the group will work together towards finding the answers to the question of the day.

The group then moves on to the much anticipated project of the day and the facilitator helps guide the Preschooler pairs into counting out their supplies and diving into the project.

The projects are completed – messy hands are wiped and parents are greeted with big grins and amazing completed projects at pickup!

Skills addressed:

Science – What if Questions

Teamwork – Working in Pairs

Counting – Picking out the correct number of items to complete the project
