Links to Learning is an integrated series of programs for children ages six weeks to five years that engages the young learner’s senses, mind and body. Each program takes advantage of a child’s readiness to learn with activities that are fun, challenging, easily understood and meaningful. Links to Learning draws from the collective expertise of renowned early-age educators such as Dewey, Piaget and Vygotsky. Links to Learning is organized according to age and stage of development. The components of each program build upon each other as children grow and develop. To take advantage of preschoolers’ remarkable ability to absorb language, opportunities to learn Spanish are woven throughout the school day.

How does S.T.E.A.M. influence social-emotional development in your child?
S.T.E.A.M. curricula promotes children’s motivation, focus, detail-oriented exploration, and collaborative play, preschool children are able to grasp and articulate some form of logical, conceptual thought in science-based play activities. Supporting children’s curiosity through open-ended questions encourages reflective speech; reflection, even in modest forms, helps children to understand complex concepts. When children are exposed to scientific activities, they show significant increases in creativity, fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration. Exposing children to natural phenomena creates inquiry, which in turn illicit interest.
