At The Strong, students and educators alike have fun while learning. All educational experiences provided by the museum are informed by the Reggio Emilia approach and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
The Strong’s Woodbury School offers both a preschool program for three- and four-year-old children and an early kindergarten program for four- and five-year-old children.
At Woodbury School, all children learn and develop in playful activities set among The Strong’s dynamic, hand-on museum exhibits.

Weather permitting, children also enjoy a secure outdoor play space designed for the exclusive use of the school.
