Just because it is summertime, your child’s learning does not have to stop out of the classroom. Each moment of the day your child is processing information from their environment, so placing them in spaces that inspire their minds is important to do. Places like museums can enhance their desire to learn, foster parental engagement, and increase their thirst for knowledge. The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center is a great place for learning and supplement instruction from the classroom.

Connect in Nature
This summer you can visit new places in nature where your child is able to learn, ask questions, and engage with the environment in a unique way. Brazos Bend State Park is able to provide a wildlife experience where your child will be able to explore 37 miles of trails, horseback riding, and visit our nature center. The nature center is great for kids to learn about the park’s main three ecosystems and the reptiles that live there. Make sure to wear suitable walking shoes and a camera to capture all the moments Brazos Bend State Park has to offer!
