You are invited to join a special Play and Learn program at the Lakeshore Museum Center on the fourth Thursday of each month (note Nov & Dec are on the third Thursday due to holidays). “Little Learners” is a free literacy-based program for Muskegon County infants and toddlers ages 0-4.
During this program, participants will be invited into one of two rooms for a storytime inside. Then both groups will head outside for socially distanced playtime. Registration via Eventbrite is required but there is no charge for this program. All attendees must register including caregivers & siblings. Due to the current restrictions, 10 people will be allowed in each story room.
Also in consideration of current health concerns we will temp check everyone at the door, and while inside the museum everyone over 2 years of age will need to wear a mask according to our current policy. Outside we kindly ask that adults wear masks, but children are not required to.
This program will run for 50-60 minutes, 15-20 inside and the rest outside. During this program adults and children will have fun learning through songs, stories, sensory stations, motor skills stations, art and more, all with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) theme!
Every two months we will feature a new theme and book for participants to take home for free!
RSVPs required. Register through Eventbrite here (or contact Jackie at 231-724-5526 to register over the phone).
Sept/Oct: Baby Animals
Mach/April: Volcanoes & Earth Science
This program is free. If after the program you would like to visit the museum galleries the admission is free for
Muskegon County residents and museum members and $5 for non-residents ages 3 and older.
