Learning through play is one of the most effective ways to teach. Our activities bring abstract concepts in science, technology, engineering, art and math to life!
No Transportation Costs
Our “on site” option is a cost-effective option for schools that don’t want to pay the extra cost of transporting students to another facility.
Student Safety First
When we come to you, you no longer have to recruit lots of chaperones to track students off-site.
We’ll Come to Your Preschool or Daycare!
Choose from 2 format options for programs held right at your location. We can design programs for groups as small as 10, large groups of 100+ and everything in between. Programs can be held on one day or over several days.

STEAM Small-Group Direct Instruction Program
Little learners are wired to explore the world around them. At Snapology, we believe that early education works best when it’s based on preschoolers’ natural curiosity and play. Building, tinkering, and experimenting are the foundations for this program.
Our structured programs are designed just for your budding STEAM engineers, scientists, and builders. Inspired by a theme, our instructors will incorporate a STEAM building activity, related story-time, songs, movement, games and more.
- 2-3 year old class: 30-45 minute program; maximum of 16 students
- 3-4 year old class: 45-60 minute program; maximum of 16 students

Here’s what people are saying about Snapology programs. We invite you to check out all our reviews on Facebook and Google.
I arranged for Snapology to come to our school for an on site class during our summer school program. We selected the Snapology Ninjas and Superheroes programs. There were about 35 students in attendance. The instructors were great and the students were engaged for the duration of the program. I highly recommend booking a program through Snapology.
I have had the privilege to work with Snapology of Lancaster and Reading on both a personal and professional basis. My children have attended their programs and love them! This summer I worked closely with Snapology as the children’s librarian of a local library and we were able to offer and run camps at our library throughout the summer, as well as children’s programs and programs for teens as well. The instructors were amazing and many of the kids who attended formed new friendships along the way. I would highly recommend Snapology to everyone! Their programs are both relevant and engaging.
Snapology has been great for my 5th grade students! Their activities are engaging and teach them how to follow directions and work on a team. It also teaches them problem solving skills when they encounter mistakes. They are learning while having fun! They enjoy the coding and the moving technic pieces. If you are looking for an engaging, hands-on approach to learning, then I highly recommend Snapology. Ms. Serena is awesome too! We love her.
