Create, explore, play, and learn in this collaborative program that encourages preschoolers to use their natural curiosity to investigate the world around them. Each week is filled with new outdoor adventures and creative age-appropriate activities lead by our Museum Educators. Parents, grandparents and adult partners engage with their preschoolers in all activities.
Outdoor Adventures, investigate the world around us in the Museum’s arboretum, walking trails and outdoor sculpture park on a guided walking expedition that incorporates movement, stories, and learning while observing sculptures and nature. (Storytime* takes place on rainy days.)
Patio Play, creative exploration at multiple stations on our outdoor patio allow for imaginative discovery and sensory play with art activities designed to explore various processes, art materials. These activities move indoors on cold or rainy days.
Storytime*, listen to children’s stories read aloud in our quiet and cozy Millstone Reading Resource Lab. This takes place when weather does not permit outdoor exploration on our grounds.
Parents, grandparents and/or adult partners engage with their preschoolers in all activities. This is not a drop-off event and only 1 adult per child may attend. We encourage weather appropriate clothes and walking shoes suitable for grass and uneven terrain. Dress for a mess for outdoor Patio Play.
Masks are required indoors for adults and children aged 2+
