A child’s ability to learn is founded in play.
Every day new discoveries are being made in the science of brain development that provide concrete evidence that play is how children learn about the world. For a child, play is the vehicle for exploring and learning, developing new skills, and connecting with others.
Play is how children develop skills related to critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration. Often referred to as 21st century skills, these abilities are essential to succeed in our global world with complex challenges for our children to face that will certainly require flexible thinking and creative problem solving.
At The Iowa Children’s Museum, they strive to provide a rich active learning environment that fuels children’s natural curiosity and creativity. The Museum is an engaging, multi-sensory, interactive, child-centered environment offering families unique opportunities for playfulness.
