Preschool and After School Care


Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math

When children do the Egg Drop Challenge, they first draw their design.
Every summer we do the Egg Drop Challenge. Each year the children get to make a new design.
Snacks are served family style. We learn how to ask each other to pass the food and how to not take too much, learning to respect each other.

Parent Testimonials

Chelsea Hooton

"Our daughter has been with Ms. Karie for four years now! We followed her from our previous preschool to happily having her as our after school care. Ms. Karie creates a warm and welcoming environment for all the kids and parents. Our daughter always has positive things to say at pick up and looks forward to their outings."
Ellen Pepin-Cato
Our daughter had a fantastic experience attending Miss Karie's during winter break when her regular school wasn't in session. She came home each day with craft projects in hand and stories of the day's activities and adventures. Miss Karie is a skilled child development professional with a warm demeanor. Her classroom is inviting and well organized,and we felt confident that our daughter was safe in her care.  Highly recommend Miss Karie! 

Amy Nance

"We were privileged to have Miss Karie as our son's preschool teacher at a time where he was struggling to adjust to being away from home. Karie is kind, patiet and extremely knowledgeable about child development. She's also a fierce advocate for letting kids be kids! And she knows exactly how to provide them with the safe and enriching environment they need to grow into confident and curious little humans. I wouldn't hesitate one second to refer fellow parents to her care. The whole family would be better for it."

We initially planned to just do a couple weeks of summer camp with Ms. Karie. After two weeks we knew this was an excellent fit for our kid for after school. The small number of children to teacher/care giver ratio ensures that my kid gets attention and doesn't get lost in a crowd. Ms. Karie has excellent communication and has all kinds of activities for the kids: from a dentist set up where the kids can cleen theeth to a gymnastics bar to practice their flips. She encourages and supports reading practice and planting seeds in her little garden. This is such a great environment for my child who is easily over-stimulated.

My two kids have been with Karie for 4 years now, from preschool to after-school care and we still love it! They are happy at Full STEAM Ahead, receiving loving care and being playfully stimulated. They never want to leave when I come pick them up in the evening!
