Vacation Week Program

April Vacation Week

For Children 3 through 6 years old!

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 nature in their own backyard and abroad!

“Earth Keepers”

Caring for our Earth is a big job but small hands can help make a difference! Our Earth Keepers will learn ways they can help preserve our planet with hands-on activities and plenty of nature exploration.
