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)
