Infants and toddlers explore the world using their senses. In this child-led activity, infants and toddlers will have the opportunity to freely explore their touch, smell, visual, and auditory senses through our carefully thought-out and planned sensory stations.

Backyard Bugs

Crawl, hop, march! In this basic introduction to insects and arachnids, students use their budding math and science skills to observe, sort, classify and compare these creepy crawly creatures. Students will be exposed to new vocabulary as they examine these larger-than-life bugs and learn the characteristics of our six- and eight-legged friends.
