School Year STE|A|M

We're looking forward to sharing mornings and afternoons with your children this school year and are taking sign-ups for the 2022-2023 school year! If you are interested but have questions, please call Leslie on 301-814-9213.

We start each school year with an overarching theme and plan each day of the week with a standalone project. So whether your child participates one day a week or five, each day is different. We are also monitoring COVID in our community and family tolerance for indoor and/or outdoor classes.

A core element of our program since 2013, we meet our TPES /PBES Kindergarten through 5th grade students at their schools at dismissal. We then enjoy a snack, play at the park, head toward a hands-on project, or explore our city.

As always, the NatureLab includes both open and structured programs to nimbly and creatively respond to the individual needs and interests of the children in our program. 

In addition to participating in STE(A)M-based projects, each child is encouraged to explore the wider world, be it building forts, studying flora & fauna, collecting rocks, sampling wild plants, playing outside, interacting with friends and the cool NatureLab staff, or getting their hands dirty making and creating.

the NatureLab offers a morning track, an afternoon track, and a combined morning and afternoon track.
