Homeschooler Monday!

Date: Mar 16, 2015 10:00:00
Details:

March 16* 
Primary - Amazing Amphibians & Radical Reptiles
Intermediate - Gearing Up

*March is our last Homeschooler Monday of the 2014-15 school year.  We will resume in September 2015 for the 2015-16 school year.  Please check back closer to September for that schedule.

Join our education staff for an hour of self-directed learning in our galleries followed by an hour-long school program, and then we open up our atrium for homeschooled families to eat their lunches and visit. We recognize that homeschooled families often have children of a variety of ages, so each Homeschooler Monday we will offer a primary program for grades K-3, and an intermediate program for grades 4-7 simultaneously. We ask that parents of multi-child families attend the program with their youngest child. Children who are too young to register for a program may accompany parents at no charge. Registration is completed on a first come-first served basis. We strongly suggest pre-registering, as we cannot guarantee that there will still be space in the programs, and pre-registration helps our staff plan for equipment and supplies. Registration is limited to 24 children in the primary program, and 30 in the intermediate program.

NEW! Fees are now due at the time of registration and are $4/child for members and $5/child for non-members. There is no charge for parent/guardian chaperones attending the programs with their children or for younger siblings in attendance who are too young for the programs.

Daily Schedule:
10:00 -11:00 - Registration, sign-in, free time in galleries
11:00 -12:00* - Instructor led programs
12:00 -1:00 - Atrium available for lunches, visiting
*Due to potentially smaller group sizes, programs may end slightly earlier than 12pm in some cases.
