The DoSeum is San Antonio's only museum just for children where kids learn by doing, creating and tinkering, instead of just looking and listening.
Our Early Childhood Education (ECE) programs are designed for children under the age of five and based on self-expression, self-esteem, and self-awareness. We recently revamped the ECE programs for 2018 and while the program names remain the same, all the curriculum is new!
Unlike our camps, ECE programs are not drop offs. Caregivers should plan to stay at The DoSeum while their child participates in the program and invited to attend, as appropriate, to learn and play alongside their child.
Programs run one day a week, for six weeks.

Put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be… learning all about science, technology, engineering and math! In Baby Steps to STEM, children will develop their natural curiosity, creative thinking, fine-motor skills, and hand-eye coordination through play-based, STEM-focused activities; and learn through observing their environment and interacting with their peers. Families will learn how to promote STEM concepts with their babies through everyday experiences.
Does your little one love working with their hands to build, learn, and discover? In Tinker Time, children will interact with fun materials to paint, hammer, tear, paste, and create their own unique inventions. Families will develop Tinker-Lab habits of mind, such as making room for creativity, seeing mistakes as gifts, and encouraging questions. Families will also be equipped with knowledge to extend learning beyond the classroom into their homes.
Hands-on learning for kids who love math, science, and the environment! Preschoolers will be exposed to the world of creating, making, and building using their emerging scientific thinking skills. Environmental Engineers provides opportunities for children to learn about the process of designing and investigating, which will help them develop problem solving and critical thinking skills related to the environment. Our educators will help refine kids’ rapidly developing motor skills by giving them space and materials necessary to invent, build, tinker, and make. Kids and families will recognize their capacity to protect our environment.
