Preschool Adventure Day Returns With Nursery Rhyme Theme At Creative Discovery Museum

Thursday, September 5, 2013

The public is invited to introduce some of their favorite nursery rhymes to their children at Creative Discovery Museum’s Preschool Adventure Day on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Organizers said, "Jump over the moon with the cow like “Hey Diddle, Diddle,” or make a crown with Old King Cole  himself.  Nursery Rhyme Time Preschool Adventure Day will let children experience favorite nursery rhymes as they are acted out by area high school students. Children will also be able to make a Jack and Jill plate story, listen to Fiddlers Three and taste tarts from Simple Simon. This special event is designed for children 18 months to four years and their families."

“A lot of children do not learn nursery rhymes these days and it leaves them at a disadvantage as they get older because many references in literature require knowledge of nursery rhymes,” said Jenette Dean, Early Childhood manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “Children will never forget these nursery rhymes when they experience them in so many exciting, multi-sensory ways.”

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.

Regulations As A Whole On Signal Mountain

A few years ago I was flying over Chattanooga on my way to Atlanta.  The sun had just come up and I enjoyed picking out Signal Mountain’s location, on Walden’s Ridge, in the morning light.  What was amazing was that I could not tell that a town existed under the tree canopy.  I hope that the same can be said 10, 20, or even 50 years from now.  During last ...
