Explorers Program

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 required.  Please register online.  $5 / member; $6 / non-member.
***Value Packages are available--please ask us.***

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. 

4:  Chicken Little
11:  Jack and the Beanstalk
18:  Goldilocks and the three bears
25:   Three Little Pigs

December: Holidays on the prairie

Tis the season for celebrating and giving!  We will learn about holiday traditions on the prairie, and even discover some modern ways to give and say thanks this holiday season.

16: Baking for the holidays
***Preschool will not be offered on Tuesday December 23 or December 30.  See you in 2015!

Preschool Expeditions

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.
