Our engaging Homeschool Series relates to science and nature and follows CT State Standards. Our program provides families with unique, hands-on science instruction, inquiry-based learning activities, and cooperative learning opportunities. The Children’s Museum Homeschool Association is designed for students in grades K-8 and runs for a 4-month session.
In addition to 7 weeks of hands-on, cooperative science instruction in three separate tracks, enrollment in The Children’s Museum’s Homeschool Association includes special perks and programming for the whole family:
- A Family Membership to The Children’s Museum and Roaring Brook Nature Center, active through the end of December 31, 2016.
- Standards-aligned Extension Activities designed to keep learning going at home between classes.
- Parent resources, guest-speakers, and more!
Natural Wonders: Explore biology, botany and geology through encounters with the museum’s live animals and nature center resources.
Engineering and Design: Use hands on activities to learn about and use the engineering design process to complete a variety of design challenges.
Physical Science: Use the scientific method to explore chemistry, physics and more!

Little Scientists Program
In an effort to include even the littlest of learners, our Little Scientists program is for children aged 2-4 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.
High School Level Classes *NEW*
The Homeschool Association has now introduced a High School level course for students in grades 7 to 12. For the fall of 2017 students will be investigating the topics of kinematics, mechanics, motion, energy and more. Basic algebra skills expected.
