Extend the Day, Extend the Play! On January 11th, we introduce our pilot program to extend our after-school play hours. We will be open until 6 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. KidsPlay is the perfect bridge between school and dinner.
KidsPlay Programs - Learning is fun with play! The first Winter Session of STEM Lab Explorations, Story and More!, and Interactive Literacy have begun. This Session focuses on exploring our five senses through music, art, stories, and science. We are introducing an after-school session of STEM Lab Explorations on Wednesdays at 4 pm and Story and More at 4 pm on Thursdays. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience these programs if you can't make it in the morning!
New Programs. Meet at the Stage on Thursdays at 10:45 for Stage Experience with Miss Patty. This is a fun prelude to Story and More! On Fridays at 2 pm, join us for Rigamajig. What is a Rigamajig? It is a collection of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts, and rope. Come play with us and find out what you can create with it!
Caregiver Circle. Our Caregiver Circle has a new time! It is now at 9:30 am on Thursdays. Yes - this is before the museum officially opens! Caregiver Circle provides a dedicated time for caregivers to meet, relax, and talk while children engage in playful learning experiences in our multi-purpose room.
