The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum Receives Kiwanis Foundation Grant for Preschool Story Time

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- AUGUST 1, 2014 – ANN ARBOR, MICH. -- The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum recently received a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor to support its Preschool Story Time program.  The Museum hosts Preschool Story Time every Tuesday morning from 9-10 a.m. and Saturday mornings from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

“We know that reading to children at an early age has long-term benefits in terms of school readiness and academic success,” said Mel Drumm, executive director, Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. “Unlike other story time activities available in our community, the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum Preschool Story Time is focused on science. Support from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor for Preschool Story Time makes it possible for the Museum to deliver this important and unique program to our community.”

Preschool Story Time features a story followed by a hands-on science activity specifically designed for preschool students. The program provides an enriching educational experience benefiting children and their caregivers (parents, grandparents, and sitters).

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum Preschool Story time is held in the popular Preschool Gallery, a dedicated space designed especially for children 4 years old and younger.

Preschool Story Time is included at no additional change with admission to the Museum.
