Bring Your Own Baby: Caretakers + Infants in Carriers
Bring Your Own Baby is a specially designed program for adult audiences who are looking for a rich learning experience and an opportunity to meet other caretakers. Join us as we ease into the morning with some light conversation and coffee and then walk to a nearby museum where we will explore a specific theme with one of our museum educators. Babies must be in carriers.
Cost: $10/ child + caretaker
The Smithsonian Early Explorers (SEE) is part of the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center’s (SEEC) program offerings. SEE is different in that it is a two-day/week program for caretakers and children, aged 18 months to 2 years. SEEC, on the other hand, is a full-time program for infants through Kindergarten. The Early Explorers classes meet Mondays and Wednesdays in the National Museum of Natural History from 9:30am – 11:30am. SEE combines expertise in early learning with the world class resources of the Smithsonian. Young learners and their caregivers will explore museums, develop skills through play and build life-long friendships.
