Why Is Preschool Science Important?

Science in preschool isn’t about memorizing facts and theories. Instead, it’s all about discovery! Preschoolers discover and learn important things about science and the world around them through observation and experimentation. 

The very best way for preschoolers to learn these concepts is through open-ended play. We can facilitate even more opportunities for preschoolers to learn about science with fun science activities and experiments for kids.

After all, science is all about connecting your child to the world around them. While they’re young, it’s important to encourage our preschoolers to explore, be curious, and ask lots of questions. Doing science experiments with your preschoolers is a fun and easy way to encourage their curiosity and get them to ask lots of questions too!
