The Children's Museum of the East End will develop Play/Practice, which will combine ongoing outreach programming for hundreds of low-income preschool children paired with professional development for early childhood educators in Eastern Long Island. Play/Practice will accomplish the following objectives: 1) ensure that all children can access the museum; 2) actively educate and champion the importance of play; and 3) provide ongoing training for educators outside of the museum. The program will be presented at six preschools and early learning centers, serving a total of 461 children and 26 lead teachers. Play/Practice allows the museum to provide underserved children and teachers in the East End community with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and in their careers.
