STEAM in Preschool
At Stratford, STEAM instruction begins in preschool. Students learn the foundations of coding through robotics, by learning to create patterns and directions. There is a piano in every classroom, and each day, specialty music instructors visit the classroom to play, sing, and dance – developing motor skills, encouraging movement, and instilling an appreciation of the arts. Preschool students share with classmates once a week, setting the stage for confidence in public speaking. During imaginative play, students participate in problem solving exercises with classmates, without a specified outcome or direction from the teacher, where they learn to build, test, fail, and try again – gaining the fundamental skills of engineering design.
