Professional Development Offerings

pro-dev-1Curious Kids Lynnfield can be hired to help you address needs for staff continuing education regarding providing quality STEAM-based learning experiences!

We offer two- and three-hour on-site professional development seminars that focus on implementing developmentally appropriate STEAM-based instruction in Early Childhood settings. These hands-on seminars will guide your staff to:

  • unpack the Massachusetts Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences
  • build a rhetoric for why we “teach STEAM”
  • distinguish differences between “Digital Literacy” versus technology as it’s presented in the Massachusetts Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences
  • study methods for providing implicit and explicit STEAM-related learning experiences in daily practice
  • consider resources for curriculum ideas
  • develop a repertoire of quality documentation practice

pro-dev-2Your staff’s end product will be a collection of collaborative lesson plans, background knowledge about the learning experiences preschoolers should be provided with in order to build prior knowledge for later schooling, and motivation and resources to hit the ground running with STEAM-based instruction.

On-site Consulting

We also offer on-site consulting services, and can be hired to teach model lessons and provide feedback and ideas for implementing STEAM-based learning experiences on a daily basis.
