5K Science

The purpose of kindergarten science is to stimulate young children’s interest in the world that God has made for them . Science will begin to satisfy the natural curiosity of children about the wonders of the world around them. They will see that God has a plan for each part of His creation and that He not only made each living thing, but He also cares for it. Students will realize that they too are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
