Preschool Story Time


10:00AM & 3:00PM

Modeled for learners between ages 3 and 5 but fun for the whole family! Museum Educators read aloud stories chosen to help promote an interest in books and reading. Preschool Story Time helps spark imagination, models positive reading practices, and fosters listening and early literacy skills!

 S.T.E.A.M Exploration
10:00AM & 3:00PM

Teaching children about science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) is a great way for children to learn about the scientific process and to develop their critical thinking skills. Children enjoy fun, hands-on activities while learning how exciting S.T.E.A.M. can be. This is a program for children 3 years old and older.

StART with a Story

Begin with a story, then add ART! This program connects literacy and the arts. Each week we'll get creative based on a favorite storybook.

Toddler Time

Sing, make music, dance, and play! Toddler Time focuses on ages 1 to 3 using sensory-based activities to help little learners explore, create, develop and learn while having fun. Catch all four themes each month as they rotate weekly!

Kids Cooking Club

Due to COVID-19, this program will not be offered until further notice.

Flavors change from season to season. This program, sponsored by Harris Teeter, helps children to explore different foods and combine them into recipes. They will talk about different ingredients before making their signature dish. Cooking is not just a great way to fill tummies. Having to take steps one by one helps children’s reasoning and comprehension skills.
