Week of the Young Child: Provider Open House

In honor of the dedication and hard work of early learning professionals, DuPage Children's Museum (DCM) hosted an open house for them on Wednesday, April 25.  This is the third year DCM has hosted the event, which is co-sponsored by the YWCA Childcare Resource and Referral.

After arriving at 6pm, the early learning professionals played in the Museum neighborhoods, interacted with exhibits and staff and attended a program titled, “Fun with Flight,” presented by Chris Barry, our School Programs Manager. 

In addition, our guests were able to see work from our professional development series: Teaching Science Right from the Start, a program sponsored by PNC bank and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). 

By 9pm we closed the doors on the event, hopeful that we rejuvenated and inspired the very people who work to enrich the lives of our children each day.  Thank you to all who attended.  We will look forward to seeing you again next year!
