Sign your child up to participate in a Jurassic journey through stories, games, visual arts, and of course, hands-on learning. Dinosaurs are fascinating, but how much do children really know about them? At TJ’s Kids College, we’ll explore the lives of dinosaurs as an archaeologist and paleontologist would. We’ll look at bones, discuss features of different species of dinosaurs, and learn about how they survived for thousands of years. We’ll also discuss dinosaurs that still live among us today.

Join our Early Childhood faculty as we explore the water cycle and meteorology! Children will explore the three main stages of the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, and precipitation through hands-on activities and story-telling. Students will also learn to identify different types of clouds, and how each type contributes to weather patterns. Let’s explore Earth’s most precious resource together.
