    In looking for different and unique pre-k programs, we discovered one who uses movement and dance to reinforce academic learning. At Academy Arts Preschool, children ages three to five get to learn the basics of education through movement and hands on activities.

    When kids hear the word science, they often imagine a world of lab coats and numbers on a board. But science can also be fun. Groups like the Chem Demo Team at the University of Notre Dame show off just how fun science experiments can be for young students. Like the name suggests, the team demonstrates hands-on activities for school children to help them develop an interest in science.
