ScholarShare’s Toddler Time


The New Children's Museum hosts facilitated toddler programming every Friday beginning at 10am, made possible by the generous support of ScholarShare, California's 529 College Savings Plan. Our toddler program values the whole child and supports healthy bodies and minds, with music, movement and social play for young children.  

We also have three floors of interactive space for toddlers to explore. Our two current exhibition Feast: The Art of Playing With Your Food and Eureka! provide opportunities for toddlers to play, learn and engage in spectacular  art installations and through art activities. Toddlers especially love our giant kitchen sink (Wobbleland) and our sensory sand box (Sandbox Gallery).
