Mobile Museum Expansion

Heading to Polk County Preschool and VPK Programs for FREE

The Polk Plays Mobile Museum initiative is bringing our hands-on construction site to preschool and VPK centers across Polk County! For 4 & 5 year old rooms and VPK classes.

The purpose? To strengthen adult and child relationships, use real tools, and practice collaboration.

Learn About the Program

Florida Children’s Museum’s Mobile Museum curated a construction site perfect for early learners ages 4-5 and their classroom instructors. The visit starts with each Polk County early childhood instructor watching a short video (about 3 minutes long) to help set up the day. The day of your visit, a Mobile Museum Community Educator will set up three stations that students will rotate through as they build their foundation for learning, practice with smart tools, and work on collaboration. Each classroom instructor will receive a classroom set of Polk Plays toolboxes for each student.

Early childhood instructors are the most important in the pipeline for student success. The Mobile Museum is investing in the early childhood community to help strengthen their child development fluency and get them out of the classroom to look at their teaching in a new way. Florida Children’s Museum is excited to get your Mobile Museum visit started!
