Preschool Science

At The Country School, we appreciate and value children’s innate curiosity and desire to explore the world around them. We believe that through active participation with peers, experimentation with natural materials and an ongoing investigation of their environment, children can construct their own knowledge and enhance their problem-solving and social interaction capabilities. Science activities are designed to encourage observation, comparison, exploration, testing, inquiry and critical thinking. Children’s senses are stimulated while they engage in a wide variety of activities that support understanding of the physical world around them; developing concepts of sorting, measuring, and classifying; discovering a science vocabulary and observing similarities, differences and changes.
