Melbourne Museum’s new play-based sensory learning program for one to three-year-olds.

Melbourne Museum together with Biostime have introduced a new program designed to inspire, educate and entertain the littlest Melburnians in your family; Play Box.

Commencing in August, Play Box is a brand new sensory learning program designed for one to three-year-olds. And better still, the activity runs from 9am to 10am on Tuesdays to Saturdays, before the Melbourne Museum opens to the public.

The program will see various spaces within Melbourne Museum open an hour early, rotating through different themes and areas.

Play Box introduces one to three-year-olds to the museum with specific activities designed for their developmental age.

For example:

Play Box: Dinosaurs! Taking place in the Dinosaur Walk space, toddlers will learn to roar and stomp like a dinosaur, build a dino nest for some precious eggs and get playful with some prehistoric puppets.

Applying elements of play-based learning and ‘parent as first teacher’, Play Box engages toddlers using constructive play, parent and child play, play responding to movement and sound, and developing fine motor skills with sensory elements.

Key areas include:

• Physical abilities – sensory, fine motor, gross motor
• Cognitive abilities – idea making, scientific concepts, language/literacy/ maths/numeracy
• Socio/emotional abilities
• Creativity and problem solving

There are no extra costs incurred with Play Box; the activities are inclusive of your Museum entry. However, places are limited and bookings are recommended.

Where: Melbourne Museum, Carlton
When: Tuesdays to Saturdays 9 - 10am
