The Quad Cities hosts three must-do fantastic preschool activities open to visitors and Quad Citizens: Tykes on the Turf at The River’s Edge in Davenport, Teaching Kitchen at the Family Museum in Bettendorf, and KinderNature at the Botanical Center in Rock Island.

If you have someone visiting or live in the area with preschool children – these are especially great for the winter months.
