miniNaturalist Pre-K Program

The miniNaturalist Pre-K Program engages youngsters in the exploration of the natural world through fun hands-on activities and games.  Emphasis is on observation, sensory skills, and imagination to cultivate a positive connection with nature at an age when children are just beginning to investigate the world around them.

Our academic year program (September-May) is held at the Montana Natural History Center, 120 Hickory St.

Come learn and play with us!


Every session is filled with exciting new activities, art projects, and discoveries. Lean about the wild world of weasels or try to catch felt fish in your feet like an osprey! We will begin the program with an introduction to the topic before starting stories, movement, and science inquiry activities. After the whole-group time miniNaturalists can move between art, writing, science, and sensory stations set up in the Center. We also have a Discovery Room designed just for young learners with a touch table, puppets, and books.
