Early Learners (0-6 years)

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. 

Partners in Play

Partners in Play is designed especially for children ages 6 and younger to explore, play and discover with their adult caregiver. Partners in Play is a drop-in program that embraces children's natural curiosity and develops an interest in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). Be curious and investigate together as play partners! 

To foster a safe and healthy play experience, a limited number of individualized Play Baskets are available during Partners in Play program times at the entrance of Studio Grow. An Amazeum educator will give you a Play Basket based upon your child's age. You and your early learner can explore the Play Basket together as a fun way to enhance your Studio Grow experience. Play Baskets include all the supplies needed to complete your discoveries- no sharing required! Once you are done exploring, return the Play Basket to an Amazeum educator. We will clean and sanitize each Play Basket. 

Monthly themes build your child's sense of wonder and playfulness as you engage together in curiosity and hands-on discovery. Monthly theme for September: Fossil Finders! Calling all paleontologists! Let's explore the ancient world of fossils, dinosaurs and more.

Partners in Play is included in daily admission and Amazeum membership. No additional fee or registration necessary to participate.

Limited number of Play Baskets for Partners in Play are available on Mondays and Wednesdays-Saturdays from 10am-12pm in Studio Grow.   

Little Tinkerers 

Little Tinkerers family workshops in the 3M Tinkering Hub invite adults and children to be innovative thinkers and problem-solvers as they work together creating, building, and trying new things. Creativity flows as you and your early learner explore tools and tinker with materials. A new theme is explored the 2nd Saturday each month.

Family workshop for children 3-6 years old and one adult caregiver. We recommend no more than 3 children per adult.  Adult, age 18 or older, must accompany child during the workshop. 

In order to create a safe, healthy, interactive learning experience, the current CDC safety requirements apply while participating in Little Tinkerers. Each workshop has limited capacity to allow families to physically distance during the workshop. 

Amazeum members: $10 per child, $10 per adult caregiver
Non-members: $12 per child, $12 per adult caregiver

Advanced registration and payment required.
