Early Learners

Partners in Play Programs || Little Tinkers || Professional Development

The Scott Family Amazeum believes children are naturally curious and have a built-in drive to ask questions. Our Early Learner programs create a play environment that allows for young children (and their caregiver) to engage their natural curiosity, build on skills they already have, and take on new challenges.

Studio Grow logo PampersStudio Grow is designed just for early learners six years and younger and their families. Studio Grow's 1,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space contains hands-on, playful, open-ended, child-led activities that are a perfect fit for kiddos and caregivers. 

Check back often or follow @amazeum on social media and stay informed about Studio Grow! 

 

 

Partners in Play

Join us for weekly drop-in playdates in Studio Grow for early learners and their caregivers. Partners in Play explore STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) at various developmental levels. Whether your child is a cuddler, crawler, toddler or explorer, there’s a Partners in Play experience for you! 

Monthly themes build your child's sense of wonder and playfulness as you engage together in play, curiosity, and hands-on discovery.

  • July: Ways of Wildlife! | Let’s pretend to be veterinarians, scientists, and park rangers to learn about woodland wonders.

  • August: Storybook Adventures! | Classic children’s stories, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes inspire multi-sensory play activities.

Partners in Play programming is included in daily admission and Amazeum membership. No registration necessary to participate. Check here for Partners in Play program dates.
