The Small Explorers Series is for children 6 months to 5 years old with their caregivers. Each month we explore a different theme through stories, crafts, and play. The program is 45 minutes long and begins promptly. It will be held the second Saturday of each month, in-person at 11:00 am in the Discovery Den, followed by a virtual session at 12:15 pm. The program is FREE, but space is limited; advance registration is required. For more information or to register contact Kerry.Scott@sos.nj.gov. NOTE: Registration requests must be received by 10:00 am the Friday before the event in order to allow time for staff to confirm space availability.
