Little Learners at Whitaker Center is back and ready for some fun, interactive STEAM activities. We will sharpen our science process skills as we experiment, read, explore, sing, and create! Learners will have time for structured weekly activities as well as time to explore our KidsPlace exhibit.
Masks are required, group size is small, and sanitized supplies will be available for each family or group. Please review the Health and Safety Procedures here.
Every program takes place on a Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m in KidsPlace.
*Please note, the rest of the Science Center will not be available for exploration and KidsPlace will close promptly at 11:00.*
In January we are celebrating the 104th PA Farm Show as it streams to our homes from January 9th to the 16th! We'll use our science process skills to learn about plants and animals that live on the farm through games and activities. We will think like farmers and learn how they use science, engineering, technology, and math every day.
Join us as we practice our science process skills through some of our favorite Little Learners experiments and activities. We will explore nature, color, animals, weather, and more as we observe, predict, and experiment. Every week will be a different mix of tried and true favorites sure to engage your child in fun and learning.
*If inquiring about complimentary admission with an ACCESS card, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the registration process.
Every child that is crawling or walking and participating in all or part of the program will need a ticket. If young children are being carried in a pack, sling, or will remain in the stroller, they do not need a ticket.
Additionally, we realize many families have school-age children learning remotely at home. You are invited to purchase them a ticket and have them join in the program. Just keep in mind, the activities are planned for children ages two to six years old and all stations may not be developmentally appropriate for older children.
At this time, Little Learners is limited to ten participating children. No walk-ups will be admitted and registration will close at noon on Tuesday prior to the session. A detailed email with Whitaker Center's Health and Safety Procedures and where to enter the building will be sent on Tuesday afternoon prior to the program.
Thank you to Penn National Insurance for sponsoring this program.
