Little FarmHouse

OPENING FEBRUARY 25

Welcome to the farm in our newly renovated and expanded early childhood exhibit, Little FarmHouse! From the CDM atrium, you’ll see the welcoming yellow farmhouse where families can cook in the kitchen and practice nighttime routines in the nursery. Through the farmhouse is the garage, complete with a truck to tinker with. You’ll pass by the meadow with age-appropriate climbing, sensory, and relational experiences for pre-walkers. Past the farmhouse, you’ll find the barn and tractor, some friendly animals ready for pretend-play, and the farmer’s market. Through varied sensory experiences, visitors to the farm can explore the connections between farm to market to table and what it takes to make things grow. Cultivate inquiry, pretend-play, and loving connections between caregivers and children under 5 at the Little FarmHouse.

This new area of Creative Discovery Museum also includes Jayne’s Little Explorer’s Classroom. CDM’s PlayGym classes for young children and their caregivers have already moved into this specially designed room for early childhood programming. The space is named in honor of Jayne Griffin, longtime Vice President of Education for the Museum and advocate for developmentally appropriate early childhood education. This new space, with it’s high ceiling, ample storage, and proximity to the Little FarmHouse, will create new opportunities for the youngest learners in our community.
