Spring Gentle Separation Classes


Preschool Prep

Ages 2 to 3 years 
In these classes, children gradually separate from their grownups, gently easing into the preschool experience. As children become familiar with the routine of the class, grownups are guided through the separation process by experienced Museum staff. This program helps children gain independence and develop preschool readiness skills in a safe, stimulating environment.

Each class, led by expert early childhood educators, is curated around a theme featured in our captivating hands-on environments. Guided explorations of popular exhibits encourage discovery and introduce children to language and early literacy, science and math, and arts and culture.
