Log Number: MA-20-19-0715-19

Explorations V children's Museum will expand its long-term partnership with United Way of Central Florida and Polk County Schools to prepare more students for kindergarten by strengthening and centralizing services. Working together as the Early Learning Alliance, the organizations will position the museum as the hub for the United Way's established Family Fundamentals program by creating a model classroom at the museum's more centralized location. The program will host parent education sessions, playgroups and teacher trainings, as well as providing other resources to support kindergarten readiness. Participants will receive free admission to the museum for a day, while also receiving information about its financial health counseling programs, tutoring services, and play-based exhibits. Following two years of testing, the museum will host a permanent classroom in its new facility located in closer proximity to target families.
