Search for the keyword "preschool " to find these programs in the District's catalog and online listings.
The programs can be taken separately or as a package. If taken separately, the cost for one 90-minute session is $14 per person for Johnson County residents or $15 for non residents. The package cost for three sessions is $37 for Johnson County residents or $41 for nonresidents.
The first program in the Winter Fun Series is called Dinosaur Delight and will take place on Jan. 10 beginning at 9:30 a.m. Young naturalists will learn about the giant animals that roamed the earth a long time ago and compare their footprint to a dinosaur's. Participants will learn about dinosaurs of all sizes, feel a smooth stone found in a dinosaur's belly, and make their own dinosaur to take home. Because space is limited preregistration is required.
Other programs in the Winter Funs series include Creepers and Peers on Jan. 31, and Color Me Invisible on Feb. 28.
