Experience serious fun at Chiaravalle's 5th Annual Early Childhood Exploratorium and Toddler Fair.
In order for us to be prepared for your visit, we have a request — please RSVP. You can also call our Admission Office to schedule your visit.
We welcome many visitors to our classrooms: prospective parents, current parents observing their own child or the next program, and teachers observing other teachers. We are careful to schedule visits for times when you can see a typical day, but to not overload any single room with too many guests.
If you are coming for a prospective parent tour, expect to stay at least an hour and a half. Generally, classroom observations are about an hour, beginning at 8:30, 9:00 or 9:30 depending on the program you wish to see.
We ask guests who wish to spend time in a classroom to follow a few general guidelines:
- Unless otherwise indicated, visits are intended for adults. Babies in arms are welcome. However, please make alternate arrangements for toddlers. There will be a visiting day for your child later in the admission process.
- Turn off all electronics when in the classroom.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
