Group Visits - Field Trips for Young Children and Toddlers

OUR RESERVATIONS COORDINATOR MUST CONFIRM THE REQUESTED DATE/TIME FOR YOUR GROUP IN ADVANCE.


"I wanted to send a personal note to Thank you specifically for being so gracious and wonderful to our Building Blocks Therapeutic Preschool program. The 12 students who were able to attend, have extensive trauma history and some significant behavioral, emotional and/or social issues, which led us to worry about how they would do out in the community on a field trip. With your support prepping us and staying with us throughout our time at the museum today, I am happy to report we have ZERO tantrums and 24 happy smiles!! (12 kids + 12 teachers/parents) :) :) :)

It was my first visit to your children's museum and I must say how impressed I am by how perfect it is for this age group. Your staff were so engaging, kind and welcoming. One of our students was asking if he could come back another day before he even left the building! This day was very special to the kids, staff and parents who were able to attend and I wanted to thank you for generously providing us with free admission, books and passes to return for all our families. The workshops and classes you offer for the community are wonderful and I hope to continue to collaborate on ways we can get more of our families to come see all the great work you do at Habitot! Thank you again from the bottom of 24 hearts you touched today!" ~ Building Blocks Preschool
