It’s another wintery, cold Monday at Temple Sholom Selma Maisel Nursery School in Greenwich. Parents hug their little ones goodbye and head off to work, gather in the hallway to make arrangements for the upcoming coat drive or meet with teachers before classes begin — and before the goat, giant Flemish rabbit, wild turkey, snakes and lizards arrive.

The Discovery Center at SMNS has recently partnered with Stamford Museum & Nature Center to introduce and educate two, three and four year old students to rescued wildlife. Each Monday, a Wildlife Expert from the museum visits the Discovery Center bringing along a rescued animal to introduce to the children. Smaller animals are cared for on-site allowing students to interact with live animals throughout the school year.

Stamford Museum & Nature Center is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of art and popular culture, the natural and agricultural sciences, and history. Their partnership and educational program with SMNS is in alignment with their mission to inspire creativity, foster self-discovery, promote environmental stewardship, and nurture an appreciation for lifelong learning.

Phyllis Lyons, SMNS Director explains, “Students excel when learning is interactive and hands on. We integrate lessons from Stamford Museum & Nature Center Wildlife Experts who visit the Discovery Center into our classrooms for a comprehensive, holistic and fun curriculum.”
