Art, Literacy, Numeracy, Music and Science
Hastings MN Preschool
We use STEAM as our access points for guiding children's learning and discovery.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics.
CREATE / MAKE
Your child will experiment with a variety of creative activities including drawing, painting, crayons, dye, modelling, cutting, pasting, constructing, designing and much more.
All children will have a wide range of experiences to support literacy including oral language games, phonetic alphabet activities, reading books, poetry, letter manipulation activities and more.
COUNT WITH ME
All children will learn mathematical concepts relevant to their age and stage. One concept is the ability to make connection between the name of a number and actual amount of objects present. Other concepts include estimation, counting, volume, shapes, colours, measurement, time, money, symmetry and patterns.
Our music curriculum is designed to foster the foundations of music. Experimenting with bells for instance, children learn about same and different tones, high and low notes, intervals and scales. We also sing each day and move to music.
Science develops an understanding of how our world works. Natural, physical and material elements are explored.
Children learn through playing. They are active learners, explorers, experimenters and artists. During free play children are helped to follow their own interest and engage in projects that are based on these interests. This also helps children develop gross motor and fine motor skills as well as social skills and making friend.
