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.
This fall's Early Childhood programs are based on self-expression, self-esteem, and self-awareness. We have completely revamped our Early Childhood Education programs and, program names may be the same all the curriculum is new! Programs run one day a week, for six weeks.
Unlike our camp offerings, these programs are not drop off programs. Caregivers should remain within The DoSeum facilities for the duration of the programming. Caregivers are invited to attend and participate as appropriate in each offering to learn and play alongside their kids.
Session One: Begins week of September 11th
Session Two: Begins week of October 30th
Dates: Wednesdays from 10:15 am to 11 am
Price: $85 for members; $105 for non-members

Description: Babies learn to communicate with the world around them through carefully guided interactions involving song, dance, and play! Families and babies will learn sign language skills and enjoy increased communication with each other, as well as participate in joyful play and discovery with other babies and caregivers. This program will create a pathway to advancement of language and motor skills in future classroom settings and form strong bonds between family and child.

Description: If you are going to make a machine, be sure it’s magnificent! In Magnificent Machines, preschoolers will learn the basics of machines—what they are, how they work, and where they can be found. Then, they’ll have the opportunity to apply these findings artistically through designing and painting their own robots using the machines they build! Our instructors will teach them the concepts of self-discovery and communication by guiding them through various engineering projects aimed at promoting creativity and critical thinking. All preschoolers will have the opportunity to take risks, make mistakes, and gain confidence while fostering valuable skills and understandings.
