Play to Learn with Dupage Children’s Museum

DuPage Children’s Museum is taking exhibits on the road!  The library, Wheaton-Warrenville Early Childhood Collaboration and the Museum have come together to offer a wonderful program that focuses on play AND learning.  Children will engage in an interactive story while adults learn how to share Math, Art and Science concepts with preschoolers in a fun and easy way.  Together, children and caregivers will enjoy portable exhibits and hands-on projects that can be done right in the home!  In addition, community support resources will be provided.
