Did you know that a child’s brain starts to develop in utero and completes most of its development by the time they are in their mid twenties, between 21 to 25? As a part of the developmental process, preschoolers are eager to learn, grow and mirror everything they see around them.
This is why preschoolers like to ask a lot of questions such as “What is this?” “How do you ______?” “Mommy, can I _______?” And so on! There are simply not enough hours in the day to answer all the questions that preschoolers like to ask. So one of the best ways to satisfy a little preschooler’s mind is to take them on a Preschool Field Trip!
Thankfully for parents and teachers living in Orange County, California there are numerous field trips options for preschoolers in the area. To help save you time, I have put together a list of the best field trips programs for preschoolers in Orange County. As always, please call or email the venue ahead of time to verify pricing information and make reservations.
