Studies Based Learning

  • Studies Based Learning

    What are Studies?
  • The studies based approach is a method of integrating content learning through in-depth investigations of a meaningful topic. Studies form the basis of our STREAM program. Children raise questions about the topic, and through exploration and discovery they find answers to their questions. The hands-on experimental nature of studies taps into their natural curiosity, resulting in a learning environment that is both fun and intentional.

  • Why Studies?
  • Studies allow for a deep, firsthand exploration of topics that are of interest to children. Studies result in a more thorough understanding of the topic while simultaneously developing skills across all educational domains as children learn and apply the investigative process; this deep exploration allows for wider Spanish vocabulary acquisition and repetitive use of Spanish during the investigation. Finally, studies help promote a lifelong curiosity and love of learning.
