For Educators

Toddler Outreach

For ages 18-36 months. Early Childhood Outreach brings science right into your preschool classroom! All toddler programs include engaging hands-on sensory experiences that allow children to further develop fundamental early learning skills, practice fine and large motor movements, and inspire curiosity.

Toddler Outreach is available in Ohio's Franklin and contiguous Central Ohio Counties.

COSI conducts each program at your center with the help of two-three adult volunteers (teachers, aides, or parents) provided by your school. Each Toddler Outreach program is 45 minutes long and can accommodate up to 15 students.

Pricing: $100 for first session; $75 for each additional session (of same topic, held same day). Up to 4 sessions per day.

Please note that selected COSI program reservations are subject to a nominal processing fee. Proceeds from this fee help to support COSI, a not-for-profit organization. For selected programs, transaction fees may be waived for COSI Members as a benefit of membership.
