What is STEM and what does it mean?
You’re going to see us talking quite a lot in the future about STEM
So what exactly is it and how does it benefit your children at Beeches Park Day Nursery?
STEM is essentially Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths learning. These are all important areas that your children need to be comfortable with to excel in the future. STEM helps your children to become future creators, thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, explorers, and inventors. By exposing children to STEM subjects at an early age it sets a foundation for higher learning in their futures and interest in subjects that are shaping the future of the world we live in.
We’re so lucky in our location to be surrounded by industries that visually inspire our STEM learning from distribution centers, medical practice, engineering, to logistics. We can see the lorries and the bustle outside so to be able to learn how the engines work, how goods travel, how things are made, and how we use these processes in our lives gives relevance to what we learn in our STEM room.
Key members of our staff are currently undergoing training to become our official STEM ambassadors so they can effectively teach the subjects in an engaging way across all ages.
It’s all very exciting, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Watch out for more updates as we expand our STEM learning through the room settings.
