P10008691Did you know that Walking Mountains Science Center offers a preschool program each week?  This is the perfect venue for Vail Valley moms and tykes to come on out and explore their curious nature!  The EarthKeepers program allows children to practice using their senses while navigating the natural world and to have fun with others while participating in activities such as songs, stories and games.  This a a fantastic program and the kids just love it!

EarthKeepers meets every Monday and Friday from 10am to Noon and is targeted at children ages 3-5.  Topics and activities vary each week.  Come prepared for indoor and outdoor activities.  Please bring water and a small snack for your child.  The program costs $10/adult, child pair and $5/additional child.  Call (970) 827-9725 to reserve your spot!

Here's a list of sample topics from past EarthKeepers early childhood programs, take a look!  We'd also like to thank Alan Bradley® Windows & Doors for generously underwriting this program.  Their support allows us to provide fantastic supplies and crafts for each session!
