Second Thursday Preschool Program – Ice Cream Trucks!
June 14 @ 10:30 am - 12:05 pm
Second Thursday Preschooler Event –The second Thursday of each month from 10:30 AM-12:05 PM, we want your preschooler to “Get on Board” for the Southeastern Railway Museum’s special monthly preschool program!
This is an interactive educational program that allows the parent and child to participate together in activities related to the vehicle of the month.
Each month, the program features a different vehicle. There are 5 components to the program which revolve around the vehicle of the month: game, story/song, activity, craft, and when available, the vehicle itself for children to see and experience up close. Each station lasts 15 minutes. The components will be facilitated by the museum’s Education Conductors. Second Thursday is perfect for your 2 to 4-year-old.
The vehicle for June 2018 is ICE CREAM TRUCKS. Ice cream will be available to purchase!
The cost is $10 per participating child. One adult is free per participating child, additional adults are $11. To attend, check-in at the ticket counter before 10:20 AM on the second Thursday of any month. The program is limited to the first 75 children participants (and their accompanying adults) and we strongly encourage signing up in advance. Advance ticket sales will cut off at 8 pm the evening before the event (Wednesday night). If the event fills up or sells out online, there will NOT be onsite sales on Thursday. Tickets are valid only for the month purchased and may not be used for another month’s Second Thursday program.
Train rides are not included as part of the program but may be purchased separately. So that program participants do not miss any of the program, the train ride will immediately follow the last station (typically at 12:15 pm). We recommend Second Thursday participants take the train after the program, but other train rides will be scheduled throughout the morning and afternoon.
We can’t wait to see you there! If you have questions, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
