  • Contact your child’s school & other parents: Don’t hesitate to contact your child’s school and/or teacher. Your child’s school will perhaps be your best source for educational activities that are going on outside of typical school hours.

Similarly, if your child has made friends already, contacting the other child’s parents can be a good source of information. When moving to a new city, it is beneficial to be proactive in this respect.
  • Visit your local museum: Aside from visiting your local library, your local museum also typically has educational activities for children throughout the year.
  • Search out community centers: Community centers such as the YMCA typically offer a wide variety of programs for children. This can be a great way to uncover additional educational activities that may be happening in your community.
