Science. Technology. Engineering. Art. Math.
Party Time has an Early Childhood Education Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (STEAM) curriculum and program. The STEAM curriculum was designed for preschoolers to investigate, discover, and record. Party Time STEAM empowers preschoolers with critical thinking skills and introduces preschoolers to scientific method, while gaining the skills needed to successfully complete kindergarten. The STEAM curricular is new to the Washington, D.C. area, Party Time is successfully partnered and now piloting in an child development center providing the STEAM programming services. Please take a look at the diagram, which displays the early childhood developmental domains, and how Party Time STEAM incorporates these key areas in the curriculum model and program design.
Party Time STEAM curriculum consists of 12 units, lasting four weeks with an weekly class visit from an Party Time STEAM facilitator. The Party Time STEAM units consist of: STEAM Summer, Scientific Investigation Method, Numbers 1-10/10-20, Winter exploration, Fall & Harvest, Butterfly garden, Colors explorations, Transportation units and more! Party Time STEAM empowers preschoolers with critical thinking skills and introduces preschoolers to scientific method, while gaining the skills needed to successfully complete kindergarten.
This seems more for a child development center instead of a fun party experience. Children learn through play; we all learn from our peers. Party Time STEAM sets the stage for engagement with various areas of exploration. For Birthday Parties an specialized birthday plan is created for each birthday child, so no party at Party Time will never be the same. Children are introduced and encouraged to use scientific language throughout the duration of the engagement. All participants wear an scientific coat and googles, goody bags are an option for add on, and the Birthday child receives a DIY: Party Time picture frame with an group party picture. Contact a Party Time facilitator to coordinate your next birthday party plans.
