We partner with community agencies, treatment centers and homeless shelters working with underserved populations whose clients might not be aware of Please Touch Museum as a resource for early childhood development. Families and caregivers who are clients of participating agencies can partake in six weeks of play-based workshops that culminate in a visit to the museum. Families who complete the program receive a membership.
In 2015, 87 families completed the program.
The Community Partners program encourages the kind of interactive, child-directed, open-ended play that is critical to family learning and central to our values. We encourage parents to engage with their children and discover that play-based learning can be for grownups, too!< Community (Home)ACES >
