Historic learning

Preschoolers now have the opportunity to handle real antiques from the Surrey Museum’s Teaching Collection, view old-time photos and play with historic toys at Kensington Prairie Community Centre.

The Surrey Museum’s new series of extension programs began this week and will run Tuesdays till June for children three to six years old.

Little learners are invited to socialize, develop skills and imagination and discover Surrey’s past while hearing the classic stories of Beatrix Potter.

“The Kensington Prairie programs are part of a new initiative by the Surrey Museum to take its popular preschool programs out into the community,” museum public programs specialist Oana Capota said in a release. “This is an opportunity to bring the museum’s staff and items from its collections, as well as our experience with preschoolers, outside the walls of our building.”

The Kensington Prairie Community Centre is located at 16824 32 Ave.
