South Street Seaport Museum begins a new Spring Session of the Mini Mates Program with an expanded schedule. Sessions are on Thursdays, April 16 – June 4, 2015 and on Fridays, April 17 – June 5, 2015. Classes will be offered on two different days in order to minimize class size while allowing more families to participate. Families can sign up for Thursdays or Fridays, as both days will offer the same program. This program, aimed at children ages 18 months to 4 years and their parents or caregivers, is designed to encourage adults to engage in fun and educational activities with their children while guided by a Museum Educator. Themes include holidays, the changing seasons, nature, and the Seaport neighborhood! The family program will take place from 10:00am – 11:15am. The cost to attend is $200. A deposit of $100 is required at registration.
To reserve space for your child, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 748-8753. Registration is now open.
A typical Mini Mates session lasts an hour and fifteen minutes and includes unstructured play time, music-making, hands-on learning activities, art-making, reading, and snack time. The class size is intimate, fast friendships form among participants, and once families join, they keep coming back! If you join the Mini Mates program, you’ll become part of a close-knit group of friends who learn and grow together, and you’ll also develop a stronger connection to the local community. The Mini Mates program meets on a regular basis, and the program operates year round. New families can join at any time. We hope you’ll decide to come aboard!
