When you hear the word “play,” you probably think
fun, amusement, recreation. But despite the word’s
long-held connotation, decades of research have
proven that children’s free play has a powerful
influence on their intellectual, social, emotional
and physical development.
That’s right, when children pretend, build, climb
and explore, they’re not only having fun, they are
also developing life skills and coming to understand
themselves and the world around them. “Play is the
natural way for children to learn, explore and build
skills,” says Whitney Cardozo, director of education and
exhibits for the Children’s Museum of Richmond. But
nowadays, this brand of old-fashioned fun is in danger
of disappearing. Some children are overscheduled and
dependent on stimuli such as video games to entertain
them. Others lack basic life experiences and play time
due to limited resources.
That’s where the Children’s Museum of Richmond
comes in. We give all of our community’s children an
environment where they can get back to the basics of
play and simply be kids. By motivating this behavior,
we are setting children on the path to a stronger future.

Learning environments encourage children
to experiment and explore the possibilities.
“Joshua, my active threeyear-old, enjoys the
outdoors so The Backyard
is an ideal place for him.
It gives him opportunities
to be expressive in music
and creative in his sand
projects. The recent addition
of the Playhouse gives his
imagination an opportunity
to continue to grow. When
the outdoor Playhouse
opened, I was surprised
to see Josh run straight
to it and pretend that he
and his friends (whom he
didn’t know) were having a
birthday party at his house.
I was just shocked at how
he used the Playhouse to
imagine things.”
Volunteers and staff inspire children’s
creativity and confidence.
Pretending. Splashing. Performing.
The museum’s environments are designed to help
young visitors bridge the gap between their own world
and the outside world. For example, while children
splash in “The James River Water Play” exhibit, they’re
also learning how objects float and sink and even how
to operate a dam to control the flow of water.
In addition to motivating children’s intellectual, social,
emotional and physical development, these exhibits
also weave in learning concepts from the Virginia
Standards of Learning, NAEYC Standards and Virginia’s
Foundation Blocks for Early Learning.

Guiding. Motivating. Inspiring.
The Children’s Museum of Richmond is built on the
concept of open-ended, self-directed play. Whether
children are picking apples in the Apple-a-Day
Orchard or making masks in the Art Studio, our staff
and volunteers encourage them to explore and
experiment independently as well as side by side with
other children. However, should they need support or
specific behavior modeled, everyone at the museum is
trained to understand the developmental goals of each
of our learning environments and is ready to step in
when needed.
“Once I came to the museum
with a field trip and I was
so impressed with the
environment and the mission,
I thought ‘This is where I
want to be!’ The museum
understands the importance
of learning through play, the
importance of interaction and
engagement. I like to think
that I bring a presence of
compassion to the museum.
I came to give, but what I
get—the kids, their smiles
and their laughter—that’s
what makes it worthwhile.”
—Cheryl Jennings, VCU AMERICORPS
Team Leader and CMoR Volunteer
The museum’s staff and trained educators facilitate
our young visitors’ experiences, as do hundreds of
volunteers. Volunteers help in museum exhibits, the
Art Studio, summer camps and at a variety of events.
Everyone who shares their time at the museum
has one thing in common—to inspire children to
challenge themselves in order to reach new social and
intellectual heights.
167 volunteers and 30 volunteer groups logged over 10,700

Volunteers range in age from 12 yea

Educational programs teach children to
have fun with learning
Nurturing. Developing. Teaching.
Educators have one of the most important jobs in our
community. From preschool on, they work to construct
a solid educational foundation for our children,
a foundation on which children will build for the
remainder of their lives.
Aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs),
NAEYC Standards and Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for
Early Learning, the Children’s Museum of Richmond’s
educational programs help lay important groundwork
by being in perfect synergy with what our children are
learning in the classroom.
For example, our “Dinosaur Discovery” program
opens up the world of dinosaurs to preschoolers,
involving them in a paleontological dig to foster literacy
and math skills. Also building literacy, the popular
“Story Stretch: Drumsticks” program allows children
to participate in a drumming circle and enjoy an
Asante tale from West Africa. Children gain important
science concepts by learning about the food chain
and how animals thrive in all different environments
in the “Adapt in the Habitat” program. There’s even a
program called “Mapping Ancient Egypt” that teaches
children how to make a 3-D map and prepares them
for history and social studies SOLs.
“It is so difficult for many of
these families to take part
in a special opportunity
like this. In fact, most have
never been to a museum of
any kind. It was a pleasure
to watch their little faces as
they experienced the wonder
of CMoR. Our adventure
included a terrific lesson
on the five senses, which
is one of the SOLs that we
teach. Every child passed the
assessments recently given.
We know it was because of
what they learned from your
patient and well-trained
teachers. You have not
only given these rural kids
knowledge, but you also have
given them a lasting memory
of pure joy that will stay in
their hearts.”
—Liz Osterhout, Kindergarten
Teacher, Unionville Elementary School

programs can also be brought to children’s preschools,
daycares or elementary schools.

Total Contributions & Grants
While the Children’s Museum of Richmond is
supporting the social, emotional and intellectual
growth of our community’s children, we have a long
list of corporations and foundations standing behind
us to help deliver on this important mission. Corporate
benefactors like Genworth Foundation, Bon Secours
Children’s Services, CWDKids and Dominion, as well as
foundations and individuals, provide their support to a
variety of events and programs—from our Legendary
Santa event to field trip scholarships for underserved
schools. In so doing, these partners fuel our Power
of Play philosophy, and help us drive children toward
their full potential.
At the Children’s Museum of Richmond, we have
big dreams for our community’s children. But it’s our
community of partners that ensures these dreams can
come true, year after year, child after child.
