Creative Discovery Museum invites preschool children and their families to celebrate “Super Friends” on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., as it educates and celebrates the service of community helpers in Chattanooga.
This event, specifically for children ages 18 months to four years, will give children a chance to meet a firefighter, police officer, postal worker and a doctor-- the real community helpers of Chattanooga.
Fun role playing opportunities will inspire children as they dress up and act out the job of community helper. Guests will be able to make a community helper paper puppet complete with a uniform. A fire truck and police car will be on the Plaza for children to touch and explore.
“Because children learn best by participating in hands-on activities, Preschool Adventure Day: Super Friends of Chattanooga, will provide a unique opportunity to meet and interact with community helpers,” said Jenette Dean, Early Childhood Coordinator for Creative Discovery Museum. “Children and their parents will go from Super Friend station to station, experiencing new learning through play.”
During Preschool Adventure Day, children will experience multi-sensory, hands-on activities that incorporate music, art, literacy and lots of fun. Ooltewah High School ROTC students and Howard High School Early Childhood students will be volunteering at the event and will be available to guide guests through the different Super Friends activities and stations.
Preschool Adventure Saturdays provide enriching Museum experiences for children ages 18 months to 4 years. Each activity will be educationally and developmentally appropriate, so children will experience the theme of the day in a variety of ways that will be exciting for them.
This event is included in paid admission to the Museum.
