Join STEM Beginnings for a 6-week series for children, ages 3-6. Children will learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts through hands-on activities, story time and simple experiments.
-All children, ages 3-6, must be registered (including siblings) to attend in person classes.
-Parents/caregivers are expected to supervise and help their child during class but may leave the room to care for an infant/busy toddler.
-Families are expected to follow the mask guidelines required by the library at the time of the in-person program.
-Materials for the lesson will be provided by STEM Beginnings for registered children, ages 3-6, however if extra materials are available due to absences,
the teacher may share materials with siblings.
-Siblings are welcome to watch and listen to the story but we ask that parents/caregivers help to manage disruptive behavior.
-Space is limited to 12 children, ages 3-6. Please email or call the librarian if you can no longer attend so that a family on the waitlist can be contacted.
-Hot beverages are not allowed due to child safety regulations from the Department of Early Education and Care, the YFCP funding source.
-Please limit cell phone use and talking to one another while the STEM Beginnings teacher is presenting the lesson.
-Adults and children should not attend class if not feeling well to avoid spreading illness to others. If your child has a cold with a thick runny nose
or other contagious illnesses, we ask that he/she remain at home for as long as the symptoms exist. If a child has a fever, please wait 24 hours
after the fever to attend class.
