One-of-a-Kind Preschool Opens at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

New Preschool Offers a World of Possibilities

July 01, 2010
Starting school is one of the biggest milestones a child will encounter in their young life. For many children, Preschool is the first step into this new world. As parents, we seek an Educational environment that supports our child's natural curiosity and sense of play so they will continue their love of learning as they grow. What better place to accomplish this than at the new Children's Museum Preschool where learning, fun and friendship are around every corner!

Imagine giving your child the opportunity to explore, create and discover with the resources of world's largest children's museum. Children are naturally curious about their world and delight in asking questions. The Children's Museum Preschool curriculum builds on this interest and curiosity and encourages children to take an active role in learning.

The high educational standards of The Children's Museum Preschool will prepare your child for lifelong learning success. Guided by licensed, caring teachers—and with a curriculum backed by Indiana's early learning guidelines—children delve into art, science and the humanities in a classroom setting and by visiting the museum's 11 interactive galleries.

Specially designed classrooms provide a stimulating environment for children to learn in small groups. These bright, colorful spaces provide a familiar and comfortable environment that is ideally suited to their needs. By utilizing dedicated classrooms and the museum's galleries, children have unique resources and interactive, fun and engaging experiences all under one roof.
