Through purposeful play in the Museum, in classrooms and in the community, we help children and the adults in their lives learn, create magical memories, and build social, emotional, and cognitive skills that are critical to their success. But play can be harder than it sounds. poverty, neighborhood violence, and the demands of busy lifestyles sometimes mean children truly don’t have access to play
With your help, we can change that together. Join us for Play it Forward 2020 and support play, learning and access to play for the children and families in Baltimore and beyond.
Benefiting Port Discovery Children’s Museum
Play it Forward 2020 is generously sponsored by:
Provide Children with Access to Purposeful Play!
Every child should have access to purposeful play. However, playing is sometimes harder than it sounds – poverty, neighborhood violence, and the demands of busy lifestyles sometimes mean children truly don’t have access to play. Help change that by sponsoring Play it Forward!
Your support of Play it Forward allows the Museum to:
- Provide free and reduced admission visits for children in Title I schools, where many children face financial, emotional or circumstantial challenges. Help at-risk families improve literacy and parenting skills
- Honor U.S. military personnel with free and reduced admissions
- Provide Museum on the Road community outreach programs in schools, Judy Centers, Head Start Centers, and more.
- Offer educational exhibits and events linked to learning outcomes.
