First Wednesday of Every Month
A Free Program for Families with Special Needs
January 8th | 10am – Noon
January’s Great Connections will be very bubbly! Our community partner will be Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS) Gulfcoast. We hope you will join us on Sunday, Jan 8th for lots of bubbles!
On the second Sunday of every month, Great Explorations Children’s Museum will close to the general public from 10 am-12 pm and open for families with special needs to come and enjoy Great Connections, a sensory-friendly event. Great Explorations will modify lights, sounds, and provide a “cool down” room for families who need to take a break. Each month, the program will offer new stimulating activities and themes for everyone to enjoy. Great Connections is now a free program all thanks to Guardian Trust.
January 27th | 10:30am – 4:00pm
