Mississippi Children's Museum will complete the creation of the Literacy Garden, an outdoor gallery that will promote early learning and development for underserved children in the first seven years of life. The museum will develop a visitor-targeted messaging platform, improve formal exhibits and implement public programs to help children develop critical language and literacy skills, social/emotional skills, and physical skills. The Literacy Garden will offer early childhood learning resources, early literacy and language development intervention, access to outdoor play, and the promotion of caregivers and children as collaborative learners.
