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.
