Cooperstown, New York — Preschool Tuesdays return to The Farmers’ Museum on Tuesdays in June. In this weekly, structured learning environment tailored to 3–4-year-old children, our youngest guests will develop a sense of identity, place, and community as they play and explore The Farmers’ Museum guided by a museum educator. Engaging games, songs, dances, and craft activities will help strengthen gross and fine motor skills. Emphasis will be placed on developing the imagination and a sense of appreciation for life in a rural village. Families can now choose between two sessions at 10AM and 3PM each Tuesday, June 6-27. The program is included with museum admission. For more information, visit FarmersMuseum.org.
