By the age of four, our executive functions are developed enough that children are more able to focus, delay gratification, and concentrate so they can set goals, create objectives and follow through to success. In the Science Room, children are encouraged through their interest to develop healthy relationships with their friends and the environment. They build habitats for lizards, larva, insects, and other wildlife. They care for a Guinea Pig, Bearded Dragon and Chicken. In addition, they study local flora and fauna, hatch eggs from the local farm in the spring, visit tide pools, and have a great collection of bones and nests.
