Jersey City Museum is proud to announce JumpstART Preschool Program – Weekend Family Edition, a dual language preschool program designed to promote visual literacy, language development, and socialization skills.  Preschool children along with their adult companions will tour the museum's galleries and discuss works on exhibit, focusing on colors, patterns, shapes, and composition. Through interactive dialogue, thoughtful participation by every member of the group is encouraged. Key terms will be presented in both English and Spanish.
