Our unique vacation week program for children ages 3 through 6 at the South Shore Natural Science Center is a partnership between experienced Nature Center Preschool teachers and knowledgeable Science Center Naturalists!  Teachers and Naturalists combine their talents to facilitate children’s discovery of the small animals and habitats in their own backyard.

“Nature at Night”

Through outdoor exploration, art, and more, children will discover the creatures that come out at night and what is in the dark sky above. From wise owls to full moons, children will investigate native nocturnal animals and explore mysteries of the star-scattered night sky.
