January 23, 2019 – (Key West, FL). Key West Art & Historical Society’s Parent and Me Fort Adventures happen at Fort East Martello Tuesdays and Thursdays through May
Registration is now open for this season’s Parent and Me Fort Adventure classes at Fort East Martello, a Tuesday and Thursday morning education program offered by Key West Art & Historical Society and led by educator Linda Stolze that celebrates hands-on, inquiry-based learning while inviting children and parents to explore the Fort and its artifacts, dioramas, and immersive exhibits.
“The early years of life are the most critical for learning, and each class will focus on a specific theme that includes art, science, math, building, and a playful group circle that promotes creativity and problem solving,” said Society Education Director Kristy Callaway. “The program offers parents and toddlers a socially interactive and multi-sensory experience promoting brain development by encouraging exploration and discovery within a historic setting. We are proud to offer families meaningful access to this successful early childhood program.”
Children will also be able to enjoy the Imagination Playground, water play, and story time in the spectacular setting of the Martello tower.
Parent and Me Fort Adventures are open to children aged 0-5 and run from 10:00 to 11:30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays through May 30. Cost is $5 per family; free to Society members.
