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.

Tuesday Science Club –

As children travel to the arctic, they will enjoy many types of snow and ice science experiments. What a fun way to experience changes in matter.

Wednesday Conservation Club –

Put on your parkas, we are going to take trips to the North and South Pole this month. We will look at what is the same and different about the Artic (North Pole) and Antarctica (South Pole.)  We will investigate the melting ice and problems that this causes. Each child will make their own reusable ice pack to use at home and use if they get hurt.

Thursday Makers Club –

In the Inuit language “Inukshuk” means “likeness of a person.” Scattered throughout the northern parts of Greenland, Canada and Alaska, native Inuit people have built stone sculptures in the shape of a human body known as Inukshuks. They are meant to be a symbol of strength and encouragement. This month in club, we will build Inukshuks out of stones, experiment with light and shadows, and create Inukshuk paintings.

Friday Culture Club -

The month of February will focus on the Arctic and Inuit people. Students will learn about the Inuit lifestyle, including the homes they live in, the daily life, and animals found throughout the region. Students will create soap carvings, rock sculpture art, and explore hands on materials of the Inuit people.
