Central Family Center STEM Lab
One of the newer educational terms that we see frequently in the news is STEM education.
But what exactly is STEM education and is it appropriate for preschoolers? STEM is an acronym for science,
technology, engineering, and math. Here at the CFC, our STEM lab encourages open-ended exploration and
invites children to express their ideas openly. STEM 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.
