PLAY BUILDS THE FUTURE
Through our mission to spark every child’s imagination, sense of discovery, and learning through the power of play, we cultivate curiosity today to help them thrive tomorrow.
Play is linked to improved cognitive and emotional development, increased creativity, and reduced stress and anxiety. Together, we can build on the progress we’ve made and make an even bigger impact. Help us build a brighter, creative, more inclusive future by making a gift today.

Kindergarten readiness programs prepare kids to love school.
Preschool enrollment is down, primarily due to school closings and staffing shortages. Finding affordable programs with open space for enrollment can be a challenge.
CMA has brought back Building Blocks, our kinder readiness program for toddlers and preschoolers. This weekday program uses art, engineering, and music to build gross motor skills, social emotional behavior and other traits kids need to thrive in school.
We give kids and families space to make meaningful connections.
Early research suggests children are craving meaningful socialization with others coming out of the pandemic but feel inadequate to do so. Anecdotally, we all feel the effect the pandemic had on social skills.
The Museum provides an open and welcoming space for kids to interact with their caregivers, museum educators and other children. Programs like Music and Movement and Celebrate! expose children to group activities and teaches them about different cultures and experiences.
