Parents Are Welcome

All primary caregivers and children enrolled in the program will be invited to attend a practice class the week before the program begins. This will give families a chance to meet each other and get to know the instructors. Children who may need more opportunities to prepare for being dropped off are welcome to spend time with instructors prior to the beginning of the program with arrangement by the Public Programs Manager.

Parents are welcome to join us each morning from 9 – 9:15 a.m. any day their child is in the program. We welcome your participation, collaboration and contributions to our program in any number of ways including, but not in any way limited to:


  • Reading stories
  • Helping with special snacks
  • Celebrating cultural and family events in the classroom
  • Cleaning and organizing the classroom
  • Sharing expertise
  • Supporting Museum wide events such as Goblin Jamboree


  • Attending lectures and events presented by the Museum such as Creativity Forum, our annual spring fundraiser
  • Hosting and planning events for parents and children in the program
  • Arranging after school play dates at the Museum
  • Sharing parenting and educational resources with parents and teachers


  • Making a donation to support the Museum — gifts of any level help us ignite and advance creative thinking for all children
  • Purchasing items for the classroom from our wish list; such purchases may be eligible for a tax deduction
  • Contributing tuition deposits to support Discovery School teacher professional development, program improvements and establishing a scholarship fund
