This week brings us a lot of different activities. While I am highlighting more than my regular three (five this week), please know that this isn’t all there is around the Twin Cities. There is a plethora of storytimes in libraries and bookstores even at the zoo and other shops–like Choo Choo Bob’s and Creative Kidstuff. Also, there are also different non-traditional preschool programs out there like Polliwogs at Springbrook Nature Center or the different classes at Three Rivers Park District. There are music classes to try out and zoo programs to try.
Many of these possibilities are winding down by May, but know that you don’t have to have a traditional preschool experience to grow and learn. Preschool is of value and this is a great time to utilize the different resources available around the Twin Cities.
