Discover Together – Bay Area Discovery Museum

Discover Together

Prepare for Preschool

Discover Together is BADM’s toddler and parent exploration program. Join other families to explore new materials and engage in creative activities in an age-appropriate environment that reflects the approach of BADM’s on-site preschool, The Discovery School.

Discover Together is an opportunity for children to engage freely in open-ended and exploratory play with the support of their caregiver – there are no right answers or specific outcomes. Instead, families share experiences that allow children to discover new interests and build the creative problem-solving skills they’ll use throughout their lives.

At the end of the Discover Together series, both parents and children will have a better understanding of what to expect when the preschool years begin. Each Discover Together session follows the same schedule, so you can your child can gain comfort a routine that mirrors a typical preschool morning:

  • 9:15 – Arrival, free time to explore, and collaborative play
  • 9:45 – Group gathering – story, or music and movement
  • 10:30– Explore the museum campus (on your own, or with new friends from Discover Together)
