Key West Art & Historical Society’s “Parent & Me Fort Adventures” returns to Fort East Martello this November
October 17, 2023 – (KEY WEST, FL). On Thursday, November 2, the Key West Art & Historical Society welcomes the return of its successful “Parent and Me Fort Adventures” program at Fort East Martello Museum, 3501 South Roosevelt Boulevard. The Society offers the program each Thursday morning on the Parade Grounds from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and runs through May 2024.
Parent & Me Fort Adventures is a child-centric program that offers preschool-aged children the opportunity to learn and discover through hands-on play experiences. Each Parent & Me session offers themed activities including art, science, math, sensory exploration, and building. At the conclusion of the session, parents and children are invited to explore the Civil War-era fort, artifacts, and immersive exhibits that focus on the history of Key West.
“This exceptional program allows families to meet in a safe environment where children aged 1 to 5 can explore, create, and develop lasting friendships,” said Society Education Specialist Kassandra Collett. “By offering a program that promotes child-centric education, curious learners can explore based on their individual interests, moving from one activity to another increasing discovery, engagement, and critical thinking within the historic setting of the museum.”
Classes are free for Key West Art & Historical Society members; suggested $5 donation for non-members. Registration is suggested, however not required. All supplies will be provided by the Key West Art & Historical Society. For more information contact Kassandra Collett at 305-295-6616 ext. 504 or email@example.com.
