STEAM in Early Education

"Keeping it simple & fun"

STEAM, calls on educators in Early Childhood to give children opportunities to investigate an idea in a variety of settings. By asking the right questions, we can help stimulate investigations where students are identifying objects, making comparisons, making predictions, testing ideas and sharing discoveries all while observing their natural environment. 
STEAM is the way we articulate and understand the world, how we humanise it. It’s about discovering how our world works, how it can be improved, how we can live sustainably, and how we can improve the wellbeing of future generations.
STEAM skills are applicable through daily life and exploring these in an integrated way through books, discussions, experiments, art projects and educational games every day, allows children a holistic approach to learning and building a strong foundation for future learning.

What should STEAM look like for young children?
Science encourages investigation and answering questions, often involving experimentation.
Technology refers to using simple tools like crayons and rulers, as well as more complex ones like microscopes and computers.
Engineering refers to recognizing problems and testing solutions.
Arts encourage creativity and allow children to illustrate concepts they are learning.
Mathematics deals with numbers, but also patterns, shapes, organizational skills and much more.
