Central Family Center STEAM Lab
One of the newer educational terms that we see frequently in the news is STEM education.
But what exactly is STEAM education and is it appropriate for preschoolers? STEM is an acronym for science,
technology, engineering, art and math. Here at the CFC, our STEAM lab encourages open-ended exploration and
invites children to express their ideas openly. STEAM play based learning allows children to grow their critical
thinking, problem-solving and communication skills, and often assists them in furthering their skills in the
STEAM learning areas. Each month the lab is set up with a new curriculum and each classroom has an
opportunity to attend the lab weekly.
