Small Explorers Virtual Programs

Explore monthly themes and books at home with Early Learning Educator Kerry Scott! Each month Miss Kerry hosts a live virtual session on Zoom for families with children ages 5 and under. Theme-related Play Kits are distributed to registered participants in advance to encourage a tactile experience during the virtual session. The Zoom program and kit are free but space is limited and pre-registration required. Additionally, follow us on Facebook to see Miss Kerry's Small Explorers monthly videos!

Our Small Explorers program provides free family engagement workshops and programs for parents and caregivers with children from birth to age five, designed to promote school readiness. It has gained a solid reputation for quality early learning content and has formed a strong community of local families with young children. Small Explorers digital engagement will offer continuity for families during a time with so much uncertainty. The New Jersey State Museum is grateful to our long-standing partner the PNC Foundation for continuing to support this crucial program through their Grow UP Great initiative.
