• Afternoon STEAM Club Programming…

  • This year HeartPrints will offer 5 afternoons of club programming.  The foundation of our club curriculum is STEAM education.  STEAM is an acronym that refers to education-related programs in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.  STEAM education indicates integration of at least two of the STEAM disciplines within a curricular activity.  Our club curriculum is designed to support and enhance young children’s learning through quality activities that expose children to new concepts/ideas and encourage children to use their developing skills in a variety of creative ways.
    • Programs are open to preschool and kindergarten children.
    • We anticipate programs will fill up quickly.  Please consider your options and register early!
    • We are offering Clubs Monday through Friday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm.
    • Per instructions attached – please include the calendar with your registration form.  Write your child’s name in days he/she will attend.
