Science Akadémeia, The Atlanta Preschool of Science
9550 Nesbit Ferry Rd., Alpharetta
Do you have a preschooler who loves to tinker and take things apart to figure out how things work? Or ask a million questions about everything? Science Akadémeia is the school for your child! In addition to our spacious building we have an outdoor science classroom that provides a laboratory to grow plants in a greenhouse, make mudpies, dig in the soil, play with water, make bubbles, and observe the biodiversity of living things in nature. In the process, kids observe, collect, sort, feel, smell, touch, measure, experiment, and predict.
Our mission is to provide high-quality early science education in a fun, caring, nurturing, and visually stimulating environment. We provide children with the tools to cultivate their innate curiosity while providing a foundation for math, art, technology, language, and literacy. We work with children to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills to help discover and understand the world around them and figure out the answers to questions on their own.
Working collaboratively to solve problems develops social and emotional intelligence. Having to listen and take other ideas into consideration that is different from yours in order to find a solution to a problem, develops empathic skills that are needed in everyone. we believe that early immersion in using the engineering design steps integrated with the scientific method experimentations cultivate a child’s ability to develop a scientific thinking process that will last a lifetime.
We acknowledge that children are budding scientists, they are curious about their environment and the world around them. Our goal is to continue to nurture their natural curiosity to foster their love of science and learn about their environment and how things work. We believe that building their foundational understanding of scientific concepts, children will learn how things work, discover the beauty of the natural world, and develop STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Math) fluency.
Science Akadémeia, the Atlanta Preschool of Science is a full-day, year-round program for children ages 2 years to 6 years, after-school care for ages 7-13 and summer camp for all ages.
We are the community STEM hub where your budding scientist can do summer camps. Our camps offer fun and educational activities like coding, robotics, game design, and 3D printing for ages 5 to 17.
Science fun doesn’t stop on the weekends! We offer “science” birthday parties on Saturdays!
