Little Explorers is a 4-week program that takes place on Tuesdays from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Monthly topics are based on themes that fascinate 3- and 4-year-olds. Children will enjoy exploring these topics as they engage in science experiments, art activities, problem solving and Museum exploration while socializing with same-age peers. Each session is designed to be developmentally appropriate and encourage curiosity through hands-on learning.
This program will return to the Museum this year in the new Little Explorers Classroom!
Please note that children must be potty-trained to participate in Little Explorers.
Registration for Session 4 will open August 1!
This session is full of fun with animals and creatures! Join us as we learn about pets, explore worms and bugs, discover ocean creatures, and play like dinosaurs. We will have fun creating and exploring different characteristics and habitats of these creatures together.
Let's get excited about Fall! We will begin by having fun with ramps, including rolling apples and other fall items that might roll. We will also explore music, pretending to be marching bands and learning more about how sound works. Observations and experiments with leaves and pumpkins round out our fall fun!
For the last session of the year, Little Explorers will get ready for winter. As the days get darker earlier, we will explore lights and colors (and how they mix)! We will also have fun with magnets and learn about polar animals. Finally we will explore the textures, smells, science, math, and art of gingerbread men and houses!
