Igniting a Love of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) in Kids

Big Thinkers STEM Program

Here at Kids Academy, we want to get children excited to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Big Thinkers STEM is an intentional and structured program focused on engaging interest in these subjects, and it is a key component of our School Readiness program and specifically designed for children aged 3-5 years.

Each unit in the Big Thinkers STEM program allows children to work towards key development criteria, in a measurable process that will allow educators and families to see real time development.

The program covers natural science, weather, physics, and biology using a learning-through-play and hands-on approach.

In fun, interactive ways, children delve into fascinating questions like:

  • How do we grow and change?
  • What do we eat?
  • What is weather?
  • How does it move?

Led by university qualified teachers and experienced early childhood educators, Big Thinkers STEM develops lifelong skills such as curiosity, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration. It's incredibly popular with children and educators alike, and best of all it is incorporated into Kids Academy's weekly program and comes at no additional cost to families.
