Tuesdays from 9am - 10am or 10:30am - 11:30am
Join us each week as we uncover the wonders of the natural prairie of Colorado. Each week provides a unique
learning opportunity, which will engage you and your child in investigations to stimulate curiosity, problem-solving and
a love of the natural world. Your child (2-5 years) must be accompanied by an adult as programs are catered to families
working together to explore nature.
Reservations are highly recommended and are requested at least 24 hours in advance of the program. $5 / member; $6 / non-member.
***Value Packages are available--please ask us.***
August: Let’s Build
Put your building skills to work as we construct like prairie animals, Cheyenne Indians, and pioneers.
5: What do animals construct?
12: How do we build a home?
19: Let’s build like a Cheyenne Indian.
26: A home made out of dirt.
September: Fire: Friend or Foe?
We love fires for roasting marshmallows and keeping warm, and we fear the fire that could burn our home. This month we explore the unique aspects of fire and learn how to stay safe with fire and how to determine if fire is our friend or foe.
Autumn is here, and it is time to prepare for winter. Join us as we explore how people and animals enjoy this festive time of year from harvesting crops and preserving food to storing food and building winter homes.
November: Fairy Tales
Who says fairy tales aren’t real? Does a magical bean turn into a giant stalk to the sky? Can a wolf really blow down a stick house? Join us as we bring fairy tales to life on the prairie and give our own twist to classic favorites.
Expeditions are a wonderful opportunity for you and your young learner to join in a building curriculum for six weeks. Throughout the six weeks, learning experiences build on existing knowledge, and the program provides a more in-depth perspective on the planned topic. Check back regularly for updated Expedition topics.
Field Trips for Preschool Groups
If you are a preschool teacher or group leader, you can bring your students to Plains Center for a wonderful, hands-on field trip. Please see our School & Youth Groups page for more information.
