Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning starts as soon as babies are born! Babies are naturally inquisitive little scientists. All we need to do is foster that curiosity and help it blossom into new learning to create a strong foundation for future skills. If these early skills are not encouraged, studies show that children’s interest in them dies by third grade. STEM Starts Now E-newsletter will show parents and caregivers how to keep that natural sense of curiosity alive.
This wealth of information arrives every week from newborn-12 months, every two weeks to age 2.5 and monthly to age 5, targeted to your baby’s age.
Each newsletter covers all of the following topics specific to the baby’s age:
- Caring for the Caregiver
- STEM development
- Physical Development
- Cognitive Development
- Language and Communication
- Emotional/Mental Health
- Your baby by the numbers (average weight, length, head circumference, sleep needed, food needed, etc.)
- Baby Care Basics
- Schedule of well-baby checks, immunizations, expected growth spurts
