Letter from the President

How do we teach toddlers to share?

Dear Friend,

Now that we have a baby named Grant at home, my wife was trying to encourage Bennett, our two-year-old to treat his brother gently because he’s much smaller. “What are some of the things your little brother can’t do that you can do?” she asked. I think she imagined he would say something like “he can’t stand up like me.” Instead, Bennett responded, “Grant can’t play with my toys.”

 

The Children's Museum of the East End heads...west?

Looking to establish a dedicated programming space in Riverside

Children's Museum of the East End wants to stay in Riverside
Educators from the Children's Museum of the East End bring arts and science programming to families living in Riverside.
Since 2014, the Children's Museum of the East End has been sharing programming with families living in Riverside as part of the "CMEE on Wheels" outreach initiative. After the continued growth and success of the partnership, members of the underserved Southampton hamlet are hoping to create a permanent "second home" for the Museum in Ludlam Avenue Park.

Read more about the proposed project here.

These workshops sell out every year, so sign up early!

Cost: $20 for members per house, $32 for non-members per house (includes admission to the Museum)
