Come visit the Science Center's Early Childhood program, where we make learning fun and exciting! 

Your child will be introduced to chemistry, biology, physics, and geology through play-based, hands-on activities that stimulate thought and teach cause and effect.  Young children learn through play, and each class provides an experience that is both educational and memorable. Sessions are infused with age-appropriate activities that challenge and entertain your child while sparking a love of learning about the world around them. Each class includes storytime, a thematic science activity, free play structured by the week’s theme, arts and crafts, and music movement.
