Preschool Science

Get school-ready with science! Introduce your preschooler to the fascinating world of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). They will learn scientific vocabulary by reading a unique story, experiment with developmentally appropriate science through hands-on investigations, and develop important skills to prepare for success in school and in life. Each child receives a special Take-Out Science kit to learn about everyday science at home!
