A special exhibit designed to meet the developmental needs of children age 4 and younger.
Pocket Park provides sensory-rich and developmentally-significant activities for infants, toddlers and preschool-age children that reflect milestones recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, as well as state standards for early learners. The exhibit’s pretend urban park setting offers research-based features that support a child’s academic, physical, social and emotional growth during the most critical phase of their development. Caregivers will find tips for maximizing learning while playing together, as well as information presented in partnership with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to support the ages and stages of a young child’s development, including the importance of fostering a child’s early literacy and school-readiness skills, and other critical health and safety messages that contribute to a child’s overall wellness and lifelong success.
