Lakewood Ranch preschool specializing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
At Little Geniuses, we believe all young people should be prepared to think deeply and to think well so that they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow
What separates STEM from the traditional science and math education is the blended learning environment and showing our little geniuses how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. It teaches computational thinking and focuses on the real world applications of problem solving.
Challenges, mistakes, and problems are inherent every day in learning activities and social interactions. We use these challenges to help preschoolers develop a framework for approaching problems.
We believe in "Bring your own device" methodologies although we go one step further. We provide educational tablet devices for our little geniuses. We focus on STEM through exploration, play, and building curiosity about the natural world and the way things work.
We add Art + Design to the equation — to transform STEM into STEAM. Being given the opportunity to make choices and solve problems. Making art offers children a multitude of choices and many decisions to make.

STEM activities provide hands-on and minds-on lessons for the student. Making math and science both fun and interesting helps the student to do much more than just learn.
“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)Learn more
