Frequently Asked Questions
Can I register two children?
Of course, as long as both are ages 2-5.
Can we stay to explore the Museum more after class?
Can I take only one class? All of the classes? Does my child need to know anything in particular to participate?
Classes are designed to be stand-alone lessons, with no prerequisite knowledge or skills besides a willingness to be curious and have fun! Feel free to pick your favorite or sign up for them all.
Are we only going to learn about planes?
Not at all! While we love aviation, Little Engineers encourages children to ask questions about the world around them, and find the science and engineering in their everyday lives.
My child is bright and chatty/shy and methodical/full of energy/not reading yet/reading at a third grade level. Will they be a good fit for this program?
Absolutely. Our lesson plans are highly flexible and child-driven, and all activities are easily adapted to any ability level. Most importantly, our main goal is to have fun!
Who will be teaching the class?
Ms. Anney loves cats and cows, enjoys reading stories, and enjoys playing and collaborating.
