Children’s museums are a wonderful place to learn, grow, and have fun! We believe in giving our guests hands-on experiences that are relevant and inspiring. Famous statesman, philosopher, and inventor Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” We involve guests in the process of learning.
Our mission at Kidspace is to promote education and enrich the lives of children, families, and the community through interactive experiences in science, art, and the humanities.
To help us achieve this, we live by the following core values:
- Respect—We respect our guests by asking their opinions and listening. We also respect our guests and embrace diversity.
- Integrity—We do what we said we will do even when it is not the easy thing to do. We want to be transparent with our finances so our investors know how they are making a difference.
- Safety—The safety of our guests comes first. We have a safe environment where young minds of all ages can explore, learn, and have fun.
- Experiential Learning—Education is the core of who we are. We believe that when learning becomes fun, the learner does so willingly.
