The students at Parachute Express Playschool are exposed to natural science throughout our Early Childhood Education classroom where they observe life through seed cycles, organic gardening, observation of insects, animals, and the human body. Our science program introduces the children to various subjects such as insects, oviparous species, dinosaurs, germs, freezing/melting properties, nutrition, egg science, botany, the solar system, environmental education, the seasons and more.
Our students cultivate an organic vegetable garden with the wonderful help of the Growing Young Farmer’s Society, and they are able to witness plant life cycles first hand as their plants transform from season to season, nurturing a love of science (and vegetables!) at an early age. Several times per year, Nature Educators from Sea Aquaria and Swan Lake/Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary are welcomed into our classroom to kick start the curious engines of our little’s ones scientific minds!
Our Science program has expanded to include a beautiful light table, baskets and baskets of ever changing nature items and many wonderful provocations to play and explore. Our Science curriculum is an emergent one that is guided by the children and their varied interests throughout the school year, nurturing their creative thinking skills, leadership skills and reasoning abilities.
