STEAM Into Summer at Everbrook Academy

Apr 23, 2019 12:53PM

St. CharlesEverbrook Academy® is the new 21st century preschool in St. Charles, where STEAM brings the world into every classroom to educate future leaders and innovators. They offer programs for infants, toddlers, Preschool, Pre-K, and school-age students.

The STEAM educational approach (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) is defined by project-based learning and integration of the arts and sciences. Project-based learning connects academic skills to practical application, so learning is meaningful to children’s lives.

Through STEAM, children develop the skills and attributes to navigate the world around them.Also, collaboration and communication enhance social and emotional development. STEAM learning stimulates innovation, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. It encourages children to think about what they’re learning in a more connected, holistic way.

  • SCIENCE nurtures inquisitive minds and inspires curiosity.
  • TECHNOLOGY encourages working with tools (both digital and otherwise).
  • ENGINEERING promotes problem-solving skills.
  • THE ARTS help children express ideas and communicate.
  • MATH guides children to apply logic and understanding to systems.

Even the littlest learners, including infants, thrive from STEAM learning. Just like scientists, very young children learn about the world around them by experimenting and trying new ways of doing things. The bonds they form with warm, nurturing teachers and the stimulating environment of a safe, engaging classroom form a strong foundation for STEAM learning.

Summer fun and exploration is not just for older kids, though. Their Preschool and Pre-K summer program features activities and projects specifically designed for 3- and 4-year-olds. They’ll explore science, art, life on the farm and physical fitness. 

Plus, all campers receive essential summer gear—a brand-new backpack, T-shirt and water bottle—for their adventure. Stay for the whole summer!With summer just around the corner, your school-age child can discover wonder, excitement and learning at Camp Everbrook! It’s full STEAM ahead to summer fun, with a variety of weekly camp themes, awesome field trips and interesting visitors. With their theme experiences, your child can be an artist. Explorer. Zoologist. Time traveler. Or anything they want to be.
