At Cincinnati Museum Center, we know that open-ended, activity-based play is crucial to your child’s growth and development. That’s why we bring together the region's best childhood development experts every year for the Learning Through Play Conference. The American Alliance of Museums recognized the conference as a national model of community engagement with parents, families and educators alike.
This year, we will be holding multiple events in March so that both educators and parents can learn more about the importance of play. Learning Through Play for Educators is March 4 and will provide opportunities for teachers to discover ways to include play as part of their curricula, as well as earning Kentucky early childhood training hours.* Sessions are also designed for parents to better understand how their children are developing through play. Learning Through Play for Educators will be held at Mayerson JCC. Registration for Educator Day will open in mid-December.
Every Saturday in March, we will host Learning Through Play for Families. Drop-in activities will be available for families to experience the joy and benefit of playing together in Duke Energy Children’s Museum on March 4, 11, 18 and 25. Activities will be free for Museum Members or with admission to Duke Energy Children’s Museum.
*Please note that, due to changes in the Ohio approval procedures, the March 4 event will not offer Ohio training hours (Step Up to Quality).
