Children will explore and discover the wonderful world of water and awesome air through hands-on, interactive activities, science experiments and observation, crafts, songs, stories, and imaginative play. Discover the power of air through fun experiments and observation, then test it when you make and fly your very own kite! Your child will have the opportunity to be actively involved on our “wet and wild” day and will want to wear a swimsuit under his/her clothes for sprinkler fun, bubble activities and science discovery at the preschool. On Friday, June 7, we will meet at the Carl’s Family YMCA, where the children will enjoy fun outdoor activities as well as time in the pool with an instructor for water safety and swim classes. Children will need to be transported to and from the Milford Y on that day.

Through a variety of hands-on experiences, crafts, songs, stories and imaginative play, children will discover and explore the amazing world of woodland animals. Learn about the many animals living together in the woodlands, from the animals of the soil (find out what isopods are and how to find them, and watch worms at work, both in the classroom and in their natural habitat) to animals in the treetops (observe birds, find out how they make their nests, and make your own birdhouse for the birds at home!).
*One day during the week will be spent at Kensington Metro Park, where we will explore the Nature Center and woodland trails with a Woodland Animal Scavenger Hunt. Children will need to be transported to and from the park on that day. Park pass is required for entry (not included in fee). All other sessions during the week will take place at Discover Preschool.

We’ll explore and discover all aspects of the farm using our five senses both in the classroom at Discover as well as through a visit to Kensington Farm Center. Learn about work on the farm, the importance of the animals that live there and the food that is grown on a farm.
