The Connecticut Children's Museum building houses three programs, interwoven in purpose and philosophy: Creating Kids Child Care Center, Early Childhood Resource Center, and the Connecticut Children's Museum itself. Each is inspired by the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, articulated by Harvard psychologist, Howard Gardner. This rich, resourceful, cutting-edge educational theory recognizes the multiplicity of children's intelligence and honors the different ways children learn.
Why is the mission important?
The Connecticut Children's Museum is designed to be a place for...
Children need a place of their own where they can experience the magic and wisdom of learning at their own pace by interacting with exhibits that are full of whimsy and wisdom, in spaces built to their size and specifications.
Our Early Childhood Educators
Early childhood educators, working in a myriad of programs throughout the city and its suburbs, need a place to bring their children and a place where they can find support and inspiration.
Families need a place of full of color, joy and community where they can play and learn together.
