The Jericho STEM Academyis proud to announce that registration is now open for our popular “LEARNING ADVENTURES ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS.” Our Enrichment Programs provide our children the opportunity to explore interesting subjects in fun and creative ways. Children will explore with hands-on activities which we base on the student’s interests. We will provide thoughtfully prepared learning activities where children will have the opportunity for dialogue, to hypothesize and problem solve with their peers which will lead to a richer understanding of each topic. Children will enjoy an assortment of activities that include sensory, art, creating, dramatic play, movement and elements of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
