Enrichment Program for Preschool


Big Builders pre school engineering program

Our unique Big Builders enrichment program for preschool develops children’s motor, and spatial skills, while exploring geometric shapes and the animal kingdom using unique flexible parts.

e² Young Engineers believes that children best absorb these subjects through hands-on educational experience.

Using flexible pieces to assemble 3D models, the Big Builders enrichment program aims to enhance motor skills, challenging the children gradually.

The course will provide a hands-on educational experience – discovering basic engineering solutions. The course exposes children to engineering terminology, as well as terms taken from the animal kingdom, science and their current world. Children will develop self-learning skills, both in terms of building technique and knowledge. In addition, the children will develop communication skills while learning and playing with their friends.

Average lesson duration: 45 minutes

Suitable for ages: 4 – 6 years (Preschool)
