Virtual Early Explorers

In-person programs have resumed! Check our calendar for upcoming events.

Early Explorers activities are designed for children 5 and under (with adult). Activities are adaptable to other ages.

Activities are also posted on this page for at-home explorations anytime.

Virtual Early Explorers is an activity resource for parents and caregivers to lead their own exploration, sensory, and craft activities at home. We believe young children learn best through hands-on exploration, and these activities are not intended as computer time (except for occasional links to optional educational videos). We hope you will find these activities helpful to continue exploring with your children at home!
