Be with Me Playseum is committed to advancing seven different educational initiatives
with active learning experiences in our Adventure Zones and beyond.
To address the rapidly changing world in which we live, it is imperative that children become flexible thinkers and STEM literate. Active learning experiences set with real-world content present children with problem-solving challenges that nurture deep understandings about how the world works and what they can do to influence their own future.
Play experiences, both child-directed and guided, help to build the skills necessary for a smooth transition into kindergarden academics and later throughout the school years. Our School Readiness Initiative builds the following skill sets: Conceptual Thinking, Language, Spatial Awareness, Self-Regulation, Creative & Flexible Thinking, Social Skills, Number Knowledge, and Healthy Bodies.
Financial literacy comes naturally through play as kids experience the concepts of buying, spending, and earning Playseum dollars. Many of our interactive areas offer a kid-sized environment to develop an economic perspective of the world they live in.
Arts and Culture thrive in a variety of our CityShops and throughout our activity bars helping children to develop an appreciation of the world around them. Our Adventure Zones teach children about geography in other parts of our country. The performing arts are emphasized in our Theater. We encourage kids to dress up and put on a show! Opportunity for participation in visual art through various mediums can be found in our Art Room. Creating art allows children to express themselves and helps develop emotional, motor, and problem-solving skills essential to them in their daily lives
We strive to a portion of our proceeds to
We work hard to engage the five senses to trigger the stimulation and storage of memories. Through the interactive experience provided by each room of the Playseum, not only do children learn but they remember what they learn.
Children learn healthy habits at an early age from the example set by the adults around them. Engaging in healthy play reduces the risk of hypertension , diabetes, obiesity, and depression and other serious health problems. Physical and creative play also helps children develop control over their muscles and emotions. It is also important to teach children to include fruits and vegetables in their day. Although the Playseum is a destination for special treats, we strive to offer a fruit or veggie snack as a free group activity following our morning story time.
Field Trips are currently available at both our Washington DC locations. We hope to be able to provide field trips at the Minnesota location in the near future. Thanks for your patience.
