Classes & Workshops


Join us for special classes & workshops to take your hands-on learning to the next level! The Children's Museum offers a clean & safe environment, and all programs will be spread out to allow for social distancing.


Did you know?

Children can recognize race-based differences as early as 6 months old and can internalize racial bias by ages 2-4.

Talking about racial equity with kids can be difficult, but it’s essential. And we’re here to help! 


Join us!

The Children’s Museum of Cleveland and Dr. Heather Hill of Parenting for Equity & Social Justice are hosting Racial Equity Workshops for Parents this Fall. These workshops will provide a safe and judgement-free environment where parents and caregivers can learn from an expert, ask questions, engage in dialogue, and even practice some new skills.


Who is this workshop designed for?

Our racial equity programs are designed to support families of all racial and socioeconomic backgrounds on their educational journey. This workshop expands on the information covered in our Let's Talk toolkit.


If you are new to CMC's racial equity resources, or have engaged with the Let's Talk toolkit but want to engage more, this workshop is for you! If you have participated in our Parent & Caregiver Learning Community meetings with CSU, you may have covered this information already.

At CMC's Toddler Time, little learners develop their early learning skills through interactive stories, music, and activities. Families will be spread out to allow for social distancing. Attendance will be limited to 8 families, with socially distanced floor seating. Props will be sanitized prior to class. Through the generous support of the Ohio Children's Foundation, Toddler Time Classes will be FREE in the month of October.


Children must be accompanied by an adult. We encourage no more than 2 children per adult so that we can easily enforce distancing.
