Fruitlands Museum Offering Early Education for Youngsters

Thursday, March 15, 2012

 

Those seeking a stimulating educational environment for their young child may find a match at one of Massachusetts’ most historic museums.

 Fruitlands Museum in Harvard is offering a pair educational programs for children from toddlers to five-year-olds designed to get them exploring.

 “These programs are a great way to introduce young children to different types of exploration and creativity,” the museums Director of Education and Programming Maggie Green said. “We always talk about the mission of Fruitlands being to educate and inspire through the heritage, art and nature of the region, and what better way than to include our littlest visitors with the opportunity to learn and have fun in a setting geared just towards them.”

 The early education program is spilt into two different age groups. The youngest of the groups is the “Time for Me” group, designated for toddlers from 18 months to just under three years of age. The program is designed with toddlers discovering their social skills in mind. It offers a variety of activities for the child and caregiver to share in songs and crafts based on different themes to foster each child’s natural curiosity.

 The “Little Explorers” group is for children ages three to five. It is based off the preschool classroom “circle time” experience, and pushes children towards activities that compliment Fruitlands’ emphasis on the heritage of the region. Each session will include stories and music to help promote creativity and curiosity in each participant.

The prices for these programs are $10 for “Time for Me” and $12 for “Little Explorers.” However, museum members can save $5 on “Time for Me” and $4 on “Little Explorers.” For more information, visit the Fruitlands’ education center here.
