The SkiKids at New Horizon Academy program is a research-based curriculum which incorporates STEAM-based learning into your child’s daily experiences. Your child will engage in a wide variety of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math activities. Through this hands-on learning approach, your child will have the opportunity to investigate the world around him, nurture wonder, and develop a design-thinking mindset.
Science encourages investigation and answering questions, making predictions, designing and carrying out experiments, and discussing results.
Technology includes using simple tools like pulleys, wheels, levers, scissors, markers, and ramps. As your child plays with these tools, he observes and learns about cause and effect.
Engineering is using materials, designing, crafting, and building – it helps your child understand how and why things work. When your child designs and builds with blocks or loose parts, she is acting as an engineer.
Art encourages creativity, increases motor skills, enhances visual learning, and boosts higher decision-making skills. Using art to plan, create, and illustrate learning is a powerful way for your child to demonstrate scientific concepts.
Mathematics incorporates the use of numbers, patterns, shapes, organizational skills, and other critical math skills. As your child counts, compares, arranges, and sorts, he is building strong foundations in mathematics.
“The SciKids at New Horizon Academy program is great. At dinner my four year old daughter started explaining scientific concepts like density, force, and gravity, and wanted to recreate the experiment she learned at school. I was grinning from ear-to-ear. I’m beyond thrilled that my daughter is learning these important 21st Century Skills. She will certainly have an edge up on her peers.”
