MSU Museum starts 'SEAL-Tots' program for young learners

The MSU Museum has announced a new program designed to allow 2- to 5-year-olds an opportunity to explore the science and culture the museum has to offer.

The program, known as SEAL-Tots, is part of the museum’s Successfully Engaging All Learners campaign. It is a collaborative effort between the MSU Museum Education Team and early childhood educators with the MSU Child Development Laboratories.

Beginning Sept. 23, SEAL-Tots visitors, along with their parents, teachers and caregivers, can use objects, music, movement and all of their senses to explore the museum’s environment.

Caregivers can borrow activity backpacks filled with hands-on learning and creative activities to complete at various stops throughout the museum. The activities will provide important sensory and interactive experiences for young learners.

Preschool workshops will feature the activity backpacks with additional group activities. No registration is required to use the backpacks, but groups with ten or more children are encouraged to contact the program coordinators in advance.

Funding for SEAL-Tots is provided by MSU Federal Credit Union.
