"Welcome Wednesdays" Toddler Time

The DeKalb History Center announces a new program for toddlers and their guardians, “Welcome Wednesdays.” This monthly program will emphasizes play and learning through the arts, sciences, and literature. Each class will feature a central theme that we will use to rediscover or learn about the world around us. 

 

“Welcome Wednesdays” is designed for children aged 2 - 5 with an accompanying adult. Each program is the 2nd Wednesday of the month (except for August) from 10:30-11:30 AM.

F.A.Q

 

How can I pay?

You can pay either in advance via phone 404. 373. 1088 ext 20 or the day of the event. We will accept all forms of payment.

 

Where can I park?

We are located in the Historic DeKalb Courthouse on Decatur Square. Parking is plentiful in the many lots and garages throughout the city. Unfortunately, we can't validate parking. The closest parking is the metered parking along E. Court Square, but spots are first come, first served. Click here for detailed information from the city on parking.

 

Is your facility handicap/ stroller accessible?

Yes, we are. There is a ramp on either side of the building leading to the "basement" level, with an elevator to take to the 1st floor. Look for our friendly volunteers to help you locate the ramp or help you into the building.

 

My child is under or over the recommended age, will it be appropriate?

Yes! The recommended age is our basic guideline for activities. You know your child's ability the best. For the youngest children, some activities might be a little difficult to do on their own, but we find they will still have fun.

 

What might a typical class be like?

All classes will focus on a central theme. In all classes we will work on math, science, art, literature, and time to explore the world around us or museum.

 

Do I need to RSVP?

No, but it helps us to plan ahead.
