Imagine. Smile. Create. Learn. Explore. Grow. Plan a field trip with us.
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.
The general admission for a school field trip is $9 per child and $9 per adult. You will need to put a deposit down of $100.00. The general admission includes access to all of our pretend CityShops where kids use their imagination, play dress-up, and visit our live pet shop. (Groups larger than 20 children are eligible to get a discounted rate of $7 for each adult.)
For groups of children that are 3 years and older we strongly suggest adding on the following:
Ice and Decorate a Cookie $1 Each
Mix up your own toothpaste $3 Each
For groups of children that are 5 years and older we strongly suggest adding on the following:
Paint a Ceramic Tile $5 Each
Decorate a Cupcake $2 Each
Make a Crazy Colored Lotion $3 Each
For field trips with children ages 8 years and older you must purchase a minimum of 5 Playseum Dollars for each child. The children will then get to pick and choose their own items to make at the various Interactive Stations
We ask that you treat our facility with kindness and respect. Please advise and direct your students to take care of each CityShop and place items back where they found them, so the next group through will have a good experience. The Playseum is meant to be a fun-filled place with laughter, singing, dance and movement, but if students from your field trip become a disruption to others or our property, you will be asked to leave and unable to schedule future field trips at the Playseum. Your school will be responsible for damages.
We ask that there is at least a 1:6 ratio of chaperones to kids. If children are under 3 years of age the ratio must be 1:3. If you do not bring the appropriate number of chaperones you will be denied entry but charged for the field trip. Your chaperones are recommended to be engaged with their groups by refraining from using their phones and promoting the use of imaginative play within the Cityshops.
We can accommodate field trips of up to 55 children. Safety and supervision is important to us, therefore chaperones must be 18 years or older.
The time allotted is 2 hours maximum. You may come in from 10am to 12pm or 12pm to 2pm as long as there is availability. Field trips must be scheduled in advance.
There is a food court inside the mall and has ample seating for adults and children. It is open to the public and in close proximity to the Playseum.
