Discover With Me activities are designed to directly involve both adult caregiver and child. As the adult you will be playing, pretending, exploring and discovering right along with your little one(s). When we wrap up each session of 'Discover With Me' parents are offered information and activities which will aid in continuing the fun and learning at home.
Starting promptly at 11am there are guided activities for adult caregivers and child(ren). We begin with a short discussion/presentation highlighting a particular developmental skill followed by activities that support that information.
From 10am-Noon the museum is open to all families. School groups will not be scheduled during this time to allow our youngest patrons access to all museum exhibits without the presence of large groups of older children.
Discover With Me! differs from our previous Toddler Time in a couple ways. There is a definite start and end time for each session. The content covered in the fall will be repeated with some new materials during the winter/spring session. Occasionally there will be a small fee for special materials that will always go home with parents and their child(ren).
Today's Program: Play With Me!
With the games "Drive my Car!", "Wrap it Up!", and "Under Cover" parents and children will imagine and pretend together. We will also explore the cognitive development skill of object permanence.
Discover with Me! is included with the price of admission, $6 per person (all day admission); children under age 2 free.
