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.

Children will make recycled paper in an effort to reuse valuable paper that comes from trees. Children will also practice writing Chinese symbols and print making.

Children will observe the art of various Chinese artists and practice various disciplines of art. Each child will create their own clay Ming bowl to take home. Children will enjoy Chinese ribbon dancing and practicing origami paper folding.
