Little Scientists + Membership = $140
High School Course + Membership = $168
Ages 3-5, 9:30-10:20am & 10:20 – 11:30
In an effort to include even the littlest of learners, our Little Scientists program is for children aged 3-5 who are not yet ready to take part in the Homeschool classes but still have a desire to discover and explore. The program meets during regular Homeschool Programming days. Each sessions features hands-on activities for early science exploration that will make up an exciting parent/child class program.
NEW EXTENDED TIME SLOT: In this second session of Little Scientists, we will focus on learning through play; kids will have the opportunity to explore the days class topic by playing games and doing hands-on activities with their classmates.
