Local Toddlers Invited to ‘Teddy Hospital’
Published on 29 November 2018
Local toddlers are being invited to attend ‘Teddy Hospital’ in Dundee next week.
As part of its Early Explorers programme, and in partnership with Dundee Libraries, Dundee Science Centre is inviting children aged three to five years old, and their teddies, to learn about the body. They will then enjoy a Bookbug session with Dundee Libraries’ ‘Talking ‘Bout Teddies’ project to learn about big feelings and how teddies help.
The events will be held on Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 December 2018.
Amanda Dobrowski, STEM Learning Officer said, “Children love their teddies but they’re not just for cuddling! We’ll be helping toddlers learn alongside their favourite cuddly toys – from what is in their bodies to how teddies can help them feel safe. These events promise to be a lovely, cosy and interactive way for children to learn alongside their friends and families, while also encouraging them to make healthy decisions.”
Early Explorer events are open to both organised groups and the general public, with two sessions per day – from 9.30-11am and 1-2.30pm. Cost per child is £4.50, with one adult free of charge. The price includes a healthy snack and time to explore the exhibition floor after the session. Siblings under the age of three can enjoy a snack for £2.50. All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
