Special Programs Offered:
WCM Free Summer Reading Program
Please join us at WCM on Wednesday mornings for a FREE six week summer reading program geared for children ages 5 and under!
Sitting and paying attention are learned skills. Fun with stories, books, and hands on activities can instill a love of learning. Our six week program is designed to teach "circle time" skills to our little people. Our guest host will guide an activity, read two themed books, and follow up with a craft.
What happens if your child cannot sit still for the duration? That's ok! The purpose of this is to let them experience a fun activity with a group of their peers. Groups like this can help pave the way for pre-school experiences. Museum exhibits will be closed for play; however, the playground will be open, so if you feel your child needs to run and play, you may go join the friends outside, and try again next week!
Participation will be based on a first come-first service basis until we are at capacity.
Wednesdays; TBD Summer 2018
