A weekly program designed to ignite and foster young children’s curiosity about the physical and natural world. Late Spring session: April 25–May 16.

Pre-Registration Required




This program for preschoolers and kindergartners integrates hands-on experiments, fun projects, and individual explorations in the physical and natural sciences. The science investigations and natural history explorations are specially designed to introduce young learners to the tools and processes of science in an age appropriate manner.

Both morning (9:30–11:30 a.m.) and afternoon (1–3 p.m.) sessions are offered during the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.

A typical Young Scientist program includes the following activities:

• Free Play

• Circle and Class Meeting to introduce the day’s theme

• Hands-on Science Investigation

• Snack

• Story time

• Outside Exploration or additional Science Investigations

The Young Scientist program is led by Amy VanderKooi and Rebecca Haynes, and two assistant teachers who help with activities to ensure every child is receiving individual attention.
