Creating Joyful Play for All Families: Kansas Children's Discovery Center
At the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center, we believe in the power of play. Because of the museum's special programs, play is available to everyone, no matter their need or ability. Children with autism, kids with mothers in prison, low-income families. Everyone is included. As a nonprofit, more than one in ten admissions is free or donor subsidized based on need.
When the museum closed on March 13, 2020, the play stopped, but staff got to work bringing the museum experience into homes. Here’s the story of how, with support from donors like you, we brought joyful learning experiences to thousands of families.
