Early Childhood Programs

Cantigny hopes to build on children’s sense of wonder by offering opportunities to explore nature and the world around them. Cantigny Park’s core early childhood classes include Inchworms, Sprouts, Doodlebugs, and Music Together. These popular early childhood classes are perennial favorites and are offered throughout each season.
