We offer a child-centered and developmentally appropriate program for two- through five year- old children. STEM Pre School Indy has chosen to implement the CORE curriculum. This work is based on an original work of the Core Knowledge© Foundation made available through licensing under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. This does not in any way imply that the Core Knowledge Foundation endorses the work.
The teachers use their own experiences, as well as the children’s interests, to adapt the curriculum to be unique to each STEM Pre School Indy class. Classroom observations and assessments become important tools for the teachers to communicate with parents.
