Did you know that a visit to Explore & More is not just for elementary school students? The museum has several classes and fun opportunities for even our youngest visitors! We have a Toddler Time class that caters to children ages 18 months through 3 years old, and a PreK class called Explore Even More that is the perfect fit for 3- and 4-year-olds alike.
Our classes focus on early art, math and literacy skills mixed with gross and fine motor development. With stories, songs, painting, parachute time and more, your little one will love learning, socializing and playing at Explore & More!
We even have a new class called Play & Learn. This class is a Pre-k class designed for 2.5-4-year-olds with autism/diverse learning needs. Join us for a playgroup style class for diverse little learners and their parents/caregivers. This class will meet the needs of children who benefit from a multi-sensory learning approach and adapted materials. Children will have the opportunity to play in the museum at a quieter, sensory friendly time. They can engage in themed activities that focus on pre-academic skills, social-emotional skills, communication, and motor skills. Adults will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas. We will also provide resources, make-and-take activities for home and advocacy tips.
Check out exploreandmore.org for a schedule and description of any of these classes that take place on Saturday mornings at Explore & More from 9am-10am. Our Toddler Time friends will be doing the Bunny Hop on April 8th, our Play & Learn class will be Springtime and Playing with Friends on April 22nd (I will confirm this with Silvia) and Explore Even More will be Planting Seeds of Kindness on April 29th. We hope you’ll join us!
