a Discovery Museum?
Occasionally a visitor asks why a parent
or guardian is asked to stay with their child
during a visit to the Museum. Our answer is
best expressed by our passionate belief in
our greater mission to families in addition
to the educational experience of children.
It is important to remember that a child's
motivation to learn depends on meaningful
activities and a supportive environment where
imagination and curiosity are encouraged.
You are a primary teacher and partner in learning
with your child and no one is more important
to him or her than you. This is a great opportunity
to discover the emerging personalities of
children. We hope that by visiting the Museum
and participating in its programs or special
interest activities you will be provided with
an opportunity to better understand your child's
interests and discover new ways to encourage
their natural curiosity through activities
at home and school. Remember our CDMOD motto,
It's Not Just Play, It's Serious Fun!
