Parents & Caregivers

Welcome!

We are so happy to be a part of your journey with your children. As a child’s caregiver you are, in fact, their first teacher! Did you know that The Museum is a great place for you and your children to grow and learn together through a variety of different exhibits and programs? We always have new and interesting activities going on to engage all of our visitors.

Let The Children’s Museum at Saratoga be your partner and resource in early childhood education. CMAS is designed with early learners in mind. In this space there are many learning opportunities that exist when you and your child engage with the exhibits, the programs and with each other. There are two main types of learning at CMAS dramatic play and life skills based learning. Click the links to learn more and if you’re interested in specific information about how to engage in playful learning in each of our exhibits please visit our exhibits page.

We look forward to seeing you playing and learning at The Museum soon.

In regard to recent global concerns:
 
At The Children’s Museum at Saratoga, the well-being of our visitors and members is always our first priority. As a children’s museum, we take great care to ensure the cleanliness of our space and train our staff on the practices and procedures that lead to healthy and happy communities—today and every day.
 
Still, in light of concerns related to the recent coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to take this opportunity to address the health and safety measures we are taking to protect the health of our visitors, both big and small. 
 
 1. We are committed to following public policy. The Children’s Museum at Saratoga adheres to the safety procedures and protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the Association of Children’s Museums. We are also working closely with our community partners to stay informed and adopt best practices where appropriate. 
 
2. We invest in cleanliness. Your safety inside our Museum is always our top priority. Our day-to-day cleaning procedures are very comprehensive given the nature of our space. Our team cleans exhibit toys and props throughout the day, and all parts of the Museum undergo a deep and thorough cleaning after our doors close each night. This is our practice every day at The Children’s Museum at Saratoga, not just during flu season or when illnesses affect our community.
 
3. We promote personal steps to reduce the spread of germs. We know that washing your hands regularly and properly is one of the number one ways you can prevent the spread of germs or flu. Therefore, we have signs in all bathrooms reminding our visitors and staff to wash their hands, and we have alcohol-based hand sanitizers stations on both floors of the Museum. And, as always, we remind all visitors and staff that the best way to prevent the spread of germs is to stay home if they are feeling unwell. 
We will always put the safety of our visitors first, and will communicate any updates via email, website and social media. 
On behalf of all of us at The Children’s Museum at Saratoga, we thank you for being a part of our community. We hope to see you at the Museum soon. 
 
Respectfully,
 
Sarah Smith
Executive Director
