Summer is Here!

Stoneham Library 1Stoneham Library 2We’ve been having a wonderfully busy summer at the EDC! Last week, our mobile classroom spent a day at the Stoneham Public Library to help kick-off their summer programs. The kids had a great time meeting the different live animals, learning about natural environments, creating their own stories and building bird nests! We’d like to thank the NCECP for sponsoring this event and the library for hosting us, as well as providing volunteers for the day.

The EDC Mobile Classroom makes a great supplement to regular program activities. Give us a call or text us at 603-548-1752 for detailed information about a visit to your school, camp or youth organization.

Equine Discovery Center Mobile Classroom Debuts at Stoneham Town Day

The Equine Discovery Center debuted our new mobile classroom at Town Day in Stoneham, MA on September 7th. We were sponsored by the National Coalition for Educational and Cultural Programs (NCECP), an organization whose mission is to improve the quality of care for all children via affordable educational and cultural programs to those who help shape their lives: teachers, communities and families.

The weather was beautiful and we had many visitors who kept us on our toes as they asked questions about our animal ambassadors and attended the many “micro lessons” taught by director, Tricia Bridgeo.  We had a blast and couldn’t have asked for a better kick-off for the EDC’s mobile classroom.
