The Science program at Davenport was uniquely designed for preschool children by Director Liz Harlan.
Prior to becoming an administrator, Liz Harlan taught preschool and lower science for seven years at local area private schools. Davenport’s Assistant Director, Kelly Pucillo, currently teaches Science to all the threes and pre-kindergarten students.
Children are taught core science principles through hands-on activities that allow the children to use all their senses to learn and explore how things work in their world. Science begins with developing each child’s understanding of the scientific method, and then branches into different topics involving life, earth and physical science.
Children are taught to use their minds to hypothesize, ask questions, and explore!
