One of the biggest missions of Fairytale Town is to provide children with a fun and educational experience. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Fairytale Town has a ton of educational opportunities for children. Children in grades pre-K to 5th grade have the opportunity of going on a tour with their class.
Class tours can either be guided or unguided. There’s also an option where a specially trained employee of Fairytale Town will reinforce elements of the current curriculum to the students at the end of the tour. If classes can’t make it to Fairytale Town, then Fairytale Town can come to them. Through Fairytale Town’s classroom visits program, a Fairytale Town representative will bring a few farm animals to a classroom and lead an interactive lesson.
Aside from school based educational opportunities, Fairytale Town offers children a variety of workshops, camps, and theater programs. Some of the highlighted educational workshops include; Barnyard Buddies, My Magic Plate, and Garden in a Glove. During Barnyard Buddies, participants get a behind the scenes look at the farm animals in Fairytale Town. As for My Magic Plate, participants are introduced to the basic USDA guidelines of how to carry out good nutrition. Participants learn about these guidelines through illustrations and fun activities. At the end of the program, participants get the chance to make their own take-home plate, where they are encouraged to utilize their new healthy eating habits. Finally, Garden in a Glove teaches participants how greenhouses work, and why plants are important. After learning about plants and greenhouses, participants get to make their own mini-greenhouse in a glove.
One of the highlighted camps at Fairytale Town is the Summer Fun Camp. The Summer Fun Camp is a day camp that is available to children ages 4 to 9. Participants will have the chance to listen to story times, have lunch and recess, participate in interactive and curriculum-based activities, and explore other aspects of Fairytale Town.
