Programs for Preschoolers

The Millet & District Museum, Archives and Visitor Information Centre has run two programs specifically for pre-school aged children:

1. Canada Program (January-March 2020)

This onsite program used crafts, activities, and stories to interactively teach the climate, geography, animals, food, sports, and culture of each of the Canadian provinces and territories. 

2. Pre-school Kit Program (September 2020 - March 2021) 

This activity-kit based program was designed to teach basic pre-academic skills from home. Activities, crafts, and stories focused on literacy, numeracy, emotional regulation, and learning shapes and colours. 

 

The Museum is not offering any pre-school specific programs at this time. Parents of pre-school children over age four are encouraged to look into our 2021 Summer Programs.
