Children’s Museum Extends Memberships, Asks for Donations
NEW ORLEANS – From the Louisiana Children’s Museum:
Louisiana Children’s Museum has been supporting New Orleans area families for more than 30 years. We’ve gone through a lot together. Even our internal documents recognize that fact by referring to our members as an important part the “LCM family.” We’ve watched “museum children” grow up and come back to visit with their own children. We’ve celebrated milestones of all types over many years. Together, we’ve been through a devastating hurricane, a momentous move to our wondrous new campus, and a global pandemic. Through it all, you have remained at the heart of LCM – true members of our family!
Your support and relationship means the world to us, which is why we are offering to extend your LCM membership for the amount of time we remain closed. However, we want to make sure you know that one month of our Family 2 membership equates to just about $13, which is why you may also choose to show your love for LCM by donating your extension back to us. Let us know if you’d like to accept our offer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
To protect the safety and well-being of the community, we closed our doors on March 13 in keeping with Governor Edwards’ stay-at-home order. We continue to follow the mandates of both city and state. Having our doors closed presents so many challenges for us, but the most frustrating part is missing out on being a place for you and your child to come learn and play. The day will soon come when we will open our doors again. Until then, we have been working on several ways of supporting you.
Mental Health guidelines designed to support you in finding ways to cope, understanding how to practice self-care, and nurturing your connection with your child.
A video call series that addresses mental health issues for caregivers and their children, delivered in partnership with the Tulane Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.
A video tutorial series that relies on a child’s natural curiosity as a springboard for ages birth to eight, with innovative ties back to our museum experiences.
We created these new programs just for you because we know that right now, each day is filled with uncertainty and challenge. Building Resilience, In Dialogue, and Connections At Home are each designed to address different ways of supporting you and your child through this time. Connecting and supporting families is important to us, but even more than that, it is literally our mission.
