Museum tours help preschool through kindergarten aged students develop discovery and exploratory skills. Each visit is tailored to the age and developmental needs of the students. Learning basic concepts like line, color, shape and sorting prepares children for reading and pre-math. Creative art making processes, like those provided in the Shelton Studio, develop important fine and gross motor skills. As part of their tour, children also engage in serious play and discussion that stimulates cognitive development.
Additionally, a visit to the museum allows students to interact with other children and adults and to learn accepted behavior in public community settings. Many preschools choose to make regular visits to the museum and the Shelton Studio, working closely with the master teacher to design sequential activities that build student development.
