    The Hundred Acre School Perform at Gardens Aglow @ Automobile Gallery
    Come see The Hundred Acre School, a STEM-focused preschool at Heritage Museums & Gardens, perform holiday songs and two short plays during Gardens Aglow at 6:30 pm in the Automobile Gallery. About The Hundred Acre School The Hundred Acre School engages preschoolers in active learning and preparation for success in school using Heritage’s collections, facilities, and grounds. They teach the whole child, emphasizing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) as a springboard to multidisciplinary learning. They use the natural world as their classroom, connecting children to the wonders of science through the use of its tools and processes. Using technology, observation, discovery, self-directed learning, and respect for the inherent ability to learn in all children, they provide a stimulating learning environment, access to professionals in the STEM field as role models and coaches, and opportunities for families to be continuously involved in their child’s learning and success. Their students will be inspired to direct their own learning, prepared to succeed in school and in life-long learning, and taught to be creative problem solvers and productive citizens.
