Museum School childrenFALL/SPRING 2015-2016 MUSEUM PRESCHOOL

For children ages 3, 4 and 5

For more than 65 years, Museum School has been opening young minds to a world of natural wonder. Founded in 1949, the program was first called the “Frisky and Blossom Club.” Today, the Fort Worth Museum School continues to be a national model for informal science education.

The curriculum combines natural and physical science, history and anthropology with art, music and literature. Specimens and artifacts from both science and history teaching collections support the playful learning environments.

The richness of real objects, curatorial support and a dedicated staff ensure first-hand, developmentally-  appropriate learning experiences that enrich children’s lives. Fort Worth Museum School is proud to inspire a sixth generation of early learners and their families.
