Thanks to Norton Children’s Hospital, free early-childhood PlayDates are back at Kentucky Science Center.
Exclusively for visitors ages 0-4 and their adult caregivers, PlayDates take the big kids out of the equation, letting little ones freely investigate, build, experience, and share.
PlayDates provide free access to Science in Play powered by PNC Grow Up Great, a progressive, next-generation learning experience that empowers young kids and their families to learn together and for life.
Through their underwriting, Norton Children’s Hospital helps the Science Center combat school readiness statistics by specifically encouraging families without the resources to regularly visit Science in Play to take advantage of every Playdate as they prepare their children for Kindergarten.
