 Make Me a Maker

Make Me a Maker is a STEM program that invites a parent, grandparent, relative, or caregiver to learn with a preschool age child. The program centers on literacy, inquiry, movement, creative play, problem-solving, and direction-following. As groups move about the room to different nursery rhyme themed stations, the children and adults listen to a story for a fun learning experience! 

Goals of the Make Me a Maker program include:
  • Increasing parents' knowledge of early childhood development

  • Developing school-readiness in young children

  • Promotion of positive interaction between caregivers and children

  • Encouraging parents/grandparents/caregivers to serve as primary educators

  • Fostering literacy as a life-long habit
Registration for Make Me a Maker is found on our homepage prior to session dates.
