Way to Play Day 

Friday, November 9, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

This month at our Way to Play Day, we’re focusing on your little one’s reading skills! Join us as we highlight how to make playtime in the museum more educational! We will also be offering FREE developmental and dental screenings from our friends at Healthy Smiles and the Good To Go team!

Developmental Goal:  Reading and Vocabulary Skills 

Time:  10:00a.m. – 3:00p.m.; Way to Play Days occur on the 2nd Friday of every month

The Good to Go from Head to Toe team, Pretendgineers & BrainBuilders (our experienced stage staff of early-childhood and development educators), together with our play partners, are here to assist you with:

  • Hourly Guided Play Scenarios: Embrace imagination and practice reading skills throughout the museum.
  • ASQ Developmental Assesments* from 10:00a.m. – 3:00p.m.: Assess speech, motor, cognitive and social areas. This month’s ASQ Screenings are performed by Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) and our Good To Go Coordinator.
  • Speech Screenings* from 10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.: Representatives from Speech Pathology Associates will be here to assess children’s speech and hearing.
  • Dental Screenings* from 10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m.: Our friends from Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County will be here to conduct free dental screenings for all kiddos and supplying valuable information about proper dental hygiene!
  • Parenting resources: Connecting families to developmental, behavioral, learning, parenting, educational and support services

Grown-up Tip:  This month focus on the Farm as your purposeful play space. Play “follow the leader” and harvest one fruit or vegetable, name it, and have your child copy you. Now, have your child be the leader! This game will help build your child’s vocabulary.
