The learning area of science includes demonstrating curiosity and a desire to explore and learn about our environment. Children who participate in investigations to learn about the world around them are engaging in the real work of scientists. They are asking questions, investigating, and trying out their ideas to find answers. Just like adult scientists, preschool children can make careful observations, collect and record data, and share their findings with others.

Explore the Science activities below.

  • Preschoolers have a natural curiosity about themselves and the world around them. Help them understand what living things need to grow.

  • Invite your child to listen, look, touch, smell and taste with you. Their senses are their primary means of exploring their world.
