Kindy Science has been developed to enrich and extend early childhood aged children in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) using engaging activities in an everyday environment. Early exposure to STEM concepts encourages children to question the world around them and look for solutions to problems. Hypothesising and following scientific and design methods to create new and interesting ideas.The curriculum has been developed by Camille Newlands, a STEM teacher with 20 + years of experience in Science and Mathematics.
