Our dynamic small group Fall and Winter Workshops offer age appropriate activities that are especially designed to foster creativity, promote self-expression and develop a young child’s imagination.

Curriculum is designed to support the cognitive development of early learners through hands-on engagement. Critical thinking skills are nurtured through cause and effect interactive discovery learning techniques using the arts, dramatic play, squishing, sorting, mixing, swirling, collecting and building.

Our workshops are presented by experienced educators with a talent for piquing children’s natural curiosity. Young learners may participate in social development class and for Home School families, our workshops are a perfect supplement to the academic school year.

What makes Wonderseum so unique? PLAY FIRST
Wonderseum provides a secure environment for discovery and learning through play, while supporting our philosophy that play comes first.

Recognizing that 4-year-olds need social interaction and cognitive development, our program is offered 2 or 3 days a week with a class size of only 10 students, allowing our educators to have an abundance of time to engage with students.

The Wonderseum environment provides open-ended discussion and a “playful” approach to learning and discovery while empowering children with an easier transition to kindergarten.

Guided explorations encouraging a discovery of culture through the arts, expanding language and early literacy, science and math, circle drumming, are all determined and planned to create global awareness, reading readiness and comprehension, and number recognition and association, while refining children’s fine motor skills.

*Students must be potty trained and be 4 years old by the start of the semester. Wonderseum is not designed for drop-in attendance.

Wonderseum for 4 year-olds

With a Reggio Emilia inspired environment located inside the museum, children are presented with projects that enhance their fine motor skills and self-expression, while preparing them with kindergarten readiness skills.

Math exploration provides open-minded activities reinforcing number recognition and counting through graphing with shells, cards, dominoes and pompoms.

In science, children explore the five senses and discover what body part is responsible for hearing, tasting, and smelling while using a mirror. Cloud formations are studied and insect cycles are explained by creating stain glass butterfly art projects.

Balance is explored by building a balance scale while using Playdough to engineer structures with sticks.

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.

Every class includes hands-on experiences with activities involving parachute play, bean bags, scarves, rhythm instruments, or puppets. From acting out classic musical pieces such as “Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saens to drawing/scribbling their feelings when listening to different styles of music, children are able to immerse themselves in a celebration of music!

Each day ends with a circle time reading that allows time for each student to ask questions and express their thoughts and feelings of the story.

Little Picassos for 2 & 3 year-olds meets WEDNESDAYS

2 year-olds, 9:30am-10:00am
3 year-olds, 10:30am-11:15am

Twos and threes explore art as a learning experience and are more interested in “doing” art than making finished products. During the “process”, twos and threes discover their own independence, as well as delighting in the joy of exploring and creating. Using a variety of mediums to create mini masterpieces and stimulate artistic imaginations, toddler and grown-up share the “process” of art as a stimulus to engage discovery and becoming familiar with various art mediums, such as painting, collage, fiber art and building with clay while squishing, mixing, tearing and swirling. Leave the “messy” with us, but painting clothes are recommended.

RobotiKs and Beyond, creating with technology for 7-10 year-olds meets THURSDAYS

Using the LEGO® Mindstorms® Education platform, EV3 introduces young engineers to the basic fundamentals of building and mechanical principles by engaging and motivating them to design, build and program their robots, using motors, sensors,
gears, wheels, axles and various technical components, while gaining a better understanding of how technology can work in real-world applications.

Implementing this STEM curriculum provides a hands-on solution that develops a strong understanding of the EV3 and can help develop creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.

Coding is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands, allowing students to create, build and then mechanically manipulate their “rover” with space-themed missions and solutions.
