Toddler Town

TODDLER TOWN IS A DESERT-THEMED EXHIBITION SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR OUR YOUNGEST VISITORS – LITTLE LEARNERS!

For babies through kids under five years old (and their accompanying adults), children get the experience of being a miner for-a-day, by loading “rocks” and “boulders” into an overhead bucket system, discovering Nevada’s animals, and pretending to be train engineers. Children role-play, explore, collaborate and cooperate, make decisions and problem solve as they play in structures designed to enhance their socialization and manipulative skills.

The Crawl Zone provides a protected sensory area for children who aren’t yet walking but who are active explorers! Here, they can develop skills in tracking, self-recognition and exploration while parents sit at arm’s length on a comfortable bench encircling the enclosure. A spacious Art Zone features hands-on activities as well as a reading area and parent resource station. A Nursing Nook is also available for nursing mothers.
