Our Mini Makers class for ages 3-6 takes STEM exploration a step further! After a circle time with songs and a read aloud , kids jump into STEM learning with hands-on activities and wrap up with a maker activity to take home! This class includes 45 minutes of guided instruction and 45 minutes of open play. Caregivers must stay in the building but do not need to attend the class portion. Mini Makers begins with 15 minutes of caregiver-supervised open play (from 3:30-3:45), then moves into our classroom for the guided activity (3:45-4:30), and concludes with 30 more minutes of caregiver-supervised open play (4:30-5:00).
