“What are you looking for with a background check? We do it because it’s been done for the last 20 years. Is it giving you the right kind of talent?

The science of play and learning: DuPage Children's Museum getting serious about education research

Researchers have found that play helps children determine what they like doing and naturally get better at certain task, it also develops skills outside of school.

"Museum leaders are trying to change that lack of confidence by showing parents the ways they already engage their children in play in informal settings, whether it's at home, the grocery store or the museum."

DuPage Children's Museum is making its presence known in the field of early learning with research on parental perceptions and childhood understanding of the importance of play.
