Early Learner’s Academy (ELA)

Calling all preschoolers and their grownups! Join us on Thursday and Friday mornings for Early Learner’s Academy. The Academy is designed specifically to develop your child’s essential skills and knowledge needed for school readiness. Each themed session is developed and led by our early childhood professionals and is based on the Indiana Early Learning Foundations. Thursdays and Friday from 10:30 am-11:15 am.

ELA sessions require a parent/guardian to attend with the child. We actively encourage adults to engage and participate in the learning process during ELA sessions. ELA is intended for children aged 3-5 in preparation for preschool. Cost is $2.00 for members and $3.00 for non-members + regular museum admission. Registration is required, please inquire at our front desk.
