Scientific Process

Constructivist classrooms invite all children and teachers to consider themselves scientists. 

Empirical Science

One way we prepare students for the sciences is by protecting the senses.


Teachers can use this power to advance their learning goals.

STEM Challenges

The challenges are undertaken simply for the love of science!

Why Play?

Pretend play develops as the vehicle through which language and cognition are educated

Block Play

Children are invited to play creatively and as they build they are learning about engineering, symmetry, balance, and design.

Cooking with Children

We explore fractions as we cut and share the bounty.  Children also learn chemistry as they witness ingredients blend and change.  


Involve students in decisions and actions.  Let them know they can make the world a better place.  Teach them to be bio-gladiators.

Emergent Curriculum

A teacher should be free to harness student interest and use it to pursue her learning goals.


ePortfolios are an innovative and effective method for documenting and sharing student growth.
