Project Science

Why is Science important in Early Education?
  1.  Science builds our knowledge and understanding of the world, and allows us to create new technology and innovation.
  2.  Science provides the answers to many of the questions that young children ask, such as “Why is the sky blue?”
  3.  Science complements a child’s natural curiosity.
  4.  Science develops life skills and encourages critical thinking.
  5.  Helps form independent opinions and develop decision making skills.

Color Run

This week at The Academy our summer weekly focus is Project Gross Motor. Gross motor skills are abilities that involve the large muscles in the arms, legs and torso to complete whole body movements. That  includes activities like climbing and jumping jacks. Kids rely on these skills to have successful experiences at school, on the playground, and in the community.

Our Color Run was a great time to show off our gross motor skills. We were able to practice our running and throwing skills all while having getting a colorful mess. Check out all the fun!
