A preschool that breaks with stereotypes (sponsored)

Researchers looked at how early STEM stereotypes begin for kids. They found them every step of the way. By first grade, the study found that many children believed boys were more interested than girls in engineering. By third grade, children also believe that gender-based interest is genuine in computer science. Interestingly, the research revealed that stereotypes about who is interested in STEM are stronger than stereotypes about STEM ability. The belief that girls find math and science less engaging was shown to have a more significant impact on their interest in STEM than the belief that they may not be good at it. The Brooklyn Preschool of Science inquiry-based curriculum will break these barriers and stereotypes.

2023-24 Registration open for Brooklyn’s first STEM-based preschool network in Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill & Park Slope. Created specifically for 2 to 5-year-olds, our curriculum embraces the principles of STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Open-ended science activities engage children at a wide range of developmental levels, and they also let teachers observe and respond to each child’s strengths and needs. Book your tour today!
