PlayCore Promotes Best Practices at American Children’s Museum Interactivity 2014

Share Article

Affinity program provides incentives to add play to museum exhibits.

Interactivity 2014, the Association of Children’s Museums' biggest event of the year, draws museum professionals and business partners from across the globe to discover trends, best practices, and share ideas.

PlayCore is proud to be a part of the event each year, and this year was able to engage participants and attendees through an educational session: Improving Experiences for Children with Disabilities. The interactive session illustrated ways to offer unique play opportunities for children of all abilities through inclusive environments so children can play together independently–promoting encouragement, respect, and active play, thereby creating a sense of community among all children. The program explored how to foster friendships, break down barriers, and promote disability awareness through unique exhibits, programs, and intentional design. PlayCore Master Trainer Jennie Sumrell, co-presented the workshop with Marcos Stafne of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and Jayne Griffin, of the Creative Discovery Museum In Chattanooga TN.

PlayCore also offers a unique “affinity” program for Children’s Museums who wish to expand playful exhibits, which provides a 5% discount on participating brand products. An additional 5% is donated to the Association of Children’s Museums to help promote the group and assist them in their mission to promote the impact children’s museums have in preparing children for school, building 21st century skills and nurturing a love for lifelong learning.
