5 / 5

It’s such a beautiful and fun curriculum, and my kids play a lot with ideas that stem from their weekly class! I also love the inclusive and diverse approach. It’s golden!


5 / 5

I liked how this was suitable for all ages. My oldest son loved the science of it all: "why is that happening?" "What will happen when?" And my younger son loved mixing and making a mess!
