Children are naturally curious and are “scientists” starting from a young age. As they observe, they form questions, make predictions, formulate hypotheses, and design their own experiments. They test their hypothesis and refine their predictions all as part of play.
The “T” in technology includes any man-made object, something has simple as a fork, a pair of scissors, or a wheel. As children use and play with these “tools,” they learn that with scissors you can divide a piece a paper into smaller bits, that a wheel enables a vehicle to move more quickly.
The “E” in engineering refers to the combination of what a child learns in science, math, and technology. When children build with blocks or build a pretend house with cardboard or observe someone piling up sticks, they are “engineering.” These activities lead to an understanding of how things work.
Research has also shown that early exposure to creative arts supports cognitive development. As children engage in painting, play, music, and drawing, they are discovering that symbols can be used as a means of expression. The “A” in art also includes music. Music reinforces pattern recognition and numeration.
Children encounter daily concepts of “more and less,” shape, size, sequence, and distance. When a child plays with a new object, they are exploring shape and size. When a child asks for another piece of fruit, they try the concept of more. When children learn that reading books comes after bath time, they realize the concept of sequence.
Read the Research Behind STEAM
STEAM skills are critical for success in the 21st century. AILA lays the foundations by teaching the fundamentals for prerequisite reading and writing skills.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Children imitate what they see. It's critical that positive examples show what healthy relationships are like. AILA teaches collaboration, how to make friends, how to consider other perspectives, and more.

AILA was teaching my son social lessons such as not feeling left out and it being okay to have different opinions. I was so amazed at that especially with preparing my son at such an age for social norms.
The phonics is HUGE on this! As an educator, I really love seeing how it helps Reagan learn how to read at a young age. She’ll thrive and be ready for kindergarten.
