My Little Wonderseum

3 & 4 year-olds
What makes My Little Wonderseum so unique?
PLAY FIRST

In an environment that fosters creativity, promotes self-expression and supports the development of young minds, our early learning environment is designed with empowering a child’s wonder of curiosity, exploration and play in a safe and nurturing environment.

My Little Wonderseum is intended as a magical introduction to lifelong learning in a tactile environment of discovery, where children experience interactive storytelling through dramatic play, meet performers and guest artists sharing enriching experiences, hands-on science discoveries and art and its many processes. Children experience the joy of music through singing, dancing and moving expressively to a variety of music genres, discovering different cultures through their music, and exploring rhythm and rhyme – all of which promote the development of essential skills including listening, vocabulary-building, social-emotional, and motor. Guided explorations encouraging a discovery of culture through the arts, expanding language and early literacy, science and math, drumming with Let Them Drum, are all determined and planned to create global awareness, reading readiness and comprehension, number recognition and
association, while refining children’s fine motor skills. My Little Wonderseum environment provides open-ended discussion and a “playful” approach to learning and discovery, while empowering children with an easier transition to kindergarten.

E.A.R.L.Y. Robotics Meets EV3
(Engineering and Robotics Learned Young)
meets THURSDAYS Ages 7-10 year-olds

Combining the well-known E.A.R.L.Y. Robotics program, created by NASA, that introduces 7 to 10 year-old boys and girls to engineering, with the new and expanded LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 cross-curricular STEM curriculum, is certain to provide a hands-on solution that develops a strong understanding of the basic fundamentals
of building and mechanical principles while engaging students by providing the resources to design, build and program their creations.  The combination of E.A.R.L.Y. and EV3 can help develop creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. Students build robots and realistic motorized models from LEGO® kits in a team-building atmosphere. Teams select pilots to operate the robot motors using basic on/off switches and manipulate through given obstacles and challenges to help complete missions. The EV3 system is a compact and powerful programmable computer that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback using the intuitive icon-based programming and data logging software.

Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on
their skills until they are developing complex algorithms. Students with previous Robotiks experience will have the opportunity to be challenged with curriculum designed to take strategies to the next level. Minimum of 6 students for class to make as scheduled. Early (no pun intended) registration is suggested. E.A.R.L.Y. Robotics meets EV3 is designed as a semester long workshop.

The word is out...

My 3 grandkids are visiting us for the summer from Missouri. They had fun! It is a clean, well maintained space. Lots of fun things for kids to do. I do wish they had a little bit more in the toddler 2 and under space. Staff was very pleasant. I am glad there is a place kids can go and do!

Molly Maddox Netterville

Great place to take toddlers thru 7 +/- year olds. Lots of interactive stations to play and explore. Friendly and we'll staffed. Very clean place, my 2 year old grandson loved playing with the trains and 7 year old granddaughter loved the shopping market and rice play area.

Tammy Pfenninger

I really loved the atmosphere it was very calm/relaxing place even with the children going place to place .It was my first time visiting there with our class and the kids loved every little station there to explore very age appropriate.
