EdVenture Children's Museum developed a new distance learning program for families facing challenges in the remote learning environment.

Eddie’s Study Studio will support student learning by ensuring full participation in virtual/remote learning. The program will also provide a clean and safe classroom environment for learning. Students will have the ability to engage in supplemental learning experiences with EdVenture’s education team.

“We know that families are trying to navigate a constantly-changing remote learning environment”, said Lisa Hailey, president & CEO of EdVenture. "We are committed to helping families by providing a safe space for online learning as well as fun, hands-on experiences through museum play.”

The program will be available Mon. - Fri. from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. to families with children ages kindergarten through fifth grade throughout the Midlands. Complimentary early drop-off will begin at 7:15 a.m. and after-school care will be available from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m.

“EdVenture is dedicated to the health and safety of each student attending Eddie’s Study Studio," said Kathie Williams, RN, DrPH, EdVenture’s health and safety advisor. "Safety protocols include daily temperature checks, strict social distancing within the classroom, increased and enhanced cleaning of all classroom surfaces using hospital-grade sanitizers, and required mask wearing for all children and staff members. Students attending Eddie’s Study Studio will remain separate from guests visiting the museum with dedicated entrances, restrooms, and classroom space that is located in the lower level of the building.”

School day tuition is $195 per week and after school care is available for $100 per week. Advanced registration is required.

Classes begin Monday, and registration is now open. Those interested in the program can visit EdVenture's website for additional information.
