Lafayette, Colorado – WOW! Children’s Museum (World of Wonder) today announced an exciting new community partnership with Children’s Hospital Colorado. As a leading pediatric healthcare provider, Children’s Hospital Colorado will help strengthen WOW!’s commitment to community collaboration, support the Museum’s health and wellness programming, and solidify the Museum’s dedication to the healthy development of young children and their families.
Children’s Hospital Colorado’s partnership support includes sponsorship of WOW!’s Sensory Friendly Playtimes, a series of programs for children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders to explore the Museum without the noise and crowds of a typical day. Children’s Hospital Colorado will provide medical experts and resources for families attending the upcoming March, May, July and October Sensory Friendly Playtimes. We are also pleased to announce that Children’s Hospital Colorado will sponsor a Free Day at the Museum on Thursday, May 30. This generous sponsorship will open the Museum doors to all families in the community by providing free general admission for a day.
“Our collaboration with Children’s Hospital Colorado not only expands our programming, it provides our community with child-centric ways to think about and access child development and wellness information. This partnership is a demonstration of each organization’s dedication to the children and families in our community,” said Jennifer Hinderliter, Executive Director, WOW! Children’s Museum.
“This partnership allows us to engage in our passion for child development and the well-being of families throughout our community,” said Christy Dobson, Executive Director of Corporate and Community Relations at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “We look forward to strengthening WOW!’s commitment to educating and connecting children to hands-on experiences, while emphasizing the importance of health and wellness.”
