Small Wonders School of Science


Preschool is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and Small Wonders Preschool is designed with that in mind. We offer a variety of classes, schedules, and enrichment offerings so that you can create a fully customized program that fits the needs of your child and family’s schedule.

Small Wonders Afternoon Enrichment classes

Enrichment Classes meet 11:30-3:00 pm.  Lunch time is part of the schedule. Students can bring a peanut free lunch from home or have a school provided lunch (available for an additional cost).

Create a customized schedule for YOUR child! Sign up for Small Wonders Preschool Afternoon Enrichment Classes in conjunction with your morning preschool class to create a full-day experience for your child.  Students must be independently toilet trained ages 3 to 6. 

Small Wonders School of Science

Young children are naturally curious explorers who are eager to discover information about the world around them. Children learn scientific concepts by exploring observing and investigating materials and ideas. These experiences provide the foundation for abstract and scientific thought. Science concepts are encompassed throughout the key areas of early learning; for example, children use pretend play to explore and manipulate materials, creative arts to discover a variety of ways to express their ideas, and literacy and language arts to research answers to questions.
 

* Explore the difference between Living and Non-Living things 

* Learn about the characteristics of earth and sky (seasons, weather, light, shadows, sun, moon, stars) 

* Experiment with the properties of matter (hard, soft, float, sink, solid, liquid). 

* Use our five senses to observe, explore, and experiment with scientific phenomena (hands-on science)
