Berkshire Museum is proud to present a program for little ones ages 6-18 months and their caregivers.
Come explore the world through your babies’ eyes! Positive verbal and physical interactions are a key element in their healthy growth and development. Together we will read stories, sing songs, learn sign language, and stretch our bodies and minds. There will also be time for caregivers to get to know each other, share stories, and gain information and knowledge from our collective parenting experiences. Play and learn with us every Tuesday.
WeeMuse programs are generously sponsored by Berkshire Bank Foundation.
Little ones can explore the Aquarium and three Museum galleries! Each week features songs, stories, scavenger hunts, play time, and more. Check our weekly e-news for each week’s theme. This program is geared towards children 18 months to 3 years. Older and younger siblings are always welcome!
