Forever Curious Children's Museum echoes the belief of educators worldwide that play is essential to the healthy development of a child. In order to succeed in an ever-changing world, children need to develop habits of inquiry that will last a lifetime.
Of the 350 children's museums established worldwide, the majority of them are located in urban areas. FCCM strongly believes that our rural and low-income families deserve the same opportunities that many urban families, schools and day care providers have on a daily basis within close proximity of their homes and schools.
FCCM is a dynamic educational setting where all types of informal learning occur. Because children, like adults, have different ways of acquiring knowledge, we provide culturally rich programs to increase the chance of school success and positive family experiences. Our exhibits encourage choices, problem solving and discovery. Our facility provides a welcoming environment that offers opportunities for exploration, communication and social interaction.
FCCM is a place where learning is more than an education -- it's fun and entertaining!
