Preschool Field Trips

We LOVE hosting preschool classes here at the Insectarium. The little guys just love getting to meet and learn about our friendly Bug Ambassadors. The hour long preschool program is an easy way to get the kids out in the community, learning something new.
All field trips are one hour long and include:
  • Exploration time in the Insectarium exhibit space
  • Interactions with live Bug Ambassadors
  • An active, role playing beetle game
  • A simple craft to help learn the body parts of a beetle

Programs provide a fun, safe space for students to explore the world of arthropods. and can be customized to cover a range of topics to fit your group’s needs and interests.

The base cost for a field trip is $40, which covers up to 10 students. Each additional student is $4. We can handle up to 20 preschool students per field trip but require at least 1 adult chaperone per 10 children. Field trips are $4 for each additional chaperone. For homeschooling groups the lead coordinating chaperone is free of charge, all other adults will be charged $4.
