Programs for Children

Indoors and out, the Montshire offers engaging programs for children, youth, and families.

Want to try your hand at a Lab-Coat Investigation? Or, connect great children's literature and hands-on science activities? Looking for a program for your preschooler? Montshire's staff designs age-appropriate programs that encourage kids to actively discover concepts for themselves. Our family programs allow adults and children to learn together.
