Toddler Time

Toddler Time at the Boonshoft Museum

Learn how to help your growing child(ren) reach new milestones in development through interactive play!

This program features four caregiver/child workshops, focused play time at the museum, and exclusive opportunities through the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery!

REGISTRATION FOR THE SPRING 2022 SESSIONS HAS CLOSED!
Thank you to all our applicants! Check back periodically for updates on upcoming sessions. 


Caregiver/Child workshop

Each 30-minute workshop focuses on a different topic to learn with your child(ren)! Learn about the power of observation, importance of play, story time, and how to help your toddler(s) explore the world around them.
There will be take home material designed to continue playtime at home. 
You may bring older children with you, but the workshops are specifically designed for caregiver/toddler interactions.

Toddler play time

Come in to the museum and have fun in a newly designed space for toddlers! Child(ren) will love exploring the world around them and caregivers will have an opportunity to practice the skills learned in the workshops during interactive play time.
