Today was a historic day at the Children's Museum of Richmond. We were proud to welcome 8 superintendents from area school districts to make a very special announcement. For the first time, the ten school districts in our region will hold Kindergarten registration on the same day this year, April 7th.
I am very excited to have been involved in such a wonderful and unique scholarship program for young women!
This is the 2nd year that we are offering the Snow Queen scholarship to a local high school junior. We partnered with GRASP to bring this great opportunity to area students. The scholarship was developed in 2009 to bring the character of the Snow Queen to life, and to reward a great student that exhibits a love of children along with a balance of academics, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.
How often have you visited the Community Gallery at CMoR Central? Did you even know we had a Community Gallery? Well it is never too late to discover something new! The next time you and your family are visiting, be sure to check out these red walls in the back of the museum beside the Art Studio to see some great art work.
At the Children’s Museum we overhear all kinds of questions every day. At the front desk, in the exhibits and in camps, staff and parents spend the day answering questions like, “Why is Seymour red?”, “How does pizza cook?”, “Why do people snore?” and so many more. What is important to realize as a parent or caregiver is that when children ask you 452 questions each day it is not just to drive you bonkers. They are working on developing their creativity, even though they might not know it at the time.
