At Little Academy Nursery (LAN), we use a STEAM-based approach to encourage curiosity, exploration, & wonder in young learners through a contemporary, American curriculum. STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, Math) offers our little learners a well-rounded education in an interactive and exploration-based setting that sets them up for success in school and in real life.
