Lafayette, Colorado – WOW! Children’s Museum (World of Wonder) is committed to making the Museum accessible to ALL children in our community, regardless of financial constraints.  To serve even more children and families in financial need, WOW! is pleased to announce the launch of the new Play for All initiative in partnership with the Association of Children's Museum's Museums for All program.  Play for All and Museums for All ensures that every child and family has access to a high-quality children’s museum experience. 

 

WOW!’s Play for All initiative supports the following:

  • Play for All supports families in financial need by providing a $10 annual museum membership to families who are receiving some form of public income-related assistance such as food assistance, WIC, free or reduced school lunch, Section 8 housing, TANF, or Medicaid/CHP+. 
  • Play for All supports schools serving a large percentage of children in the free and reduced school lunch program by providing discounted field trip and outreach visits for their classrooms. 
  • Play for All supports families of children with autism or sensory processing disorders by providing free admission to our Sensory Friendly Playtime events.  We turn down the lights and sounds, provide adaptive equipment, and bring in volunteer therapists to create a welcoming environment for families who would not be able to visit the Museum during regular hours.

 

“WOW! is committed to opening our doors to every child who wants to learn, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Thanks to the generosity of foundations, businesses and individual supporters, families and schools in need can take advantage of the exhibits, events, and learning experiences WOW! has to offer without worrying about the cost,” said Jennifer Hinderliter, Executive Director, WOW! Children’s Museum.

 

WOW! Children’s Museum anticipates serving over 6,000 visitors through the Play for All initiative in 2016. For more information about this new initiative visit: wowchildrensmuseum.org/get-involved/play-for-all-initiative/
