Who We Are

 

Imagination Station Children’s Museum is a 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to providing low-cost, high-impact play and programming for children from birth through elementary school. 

 

Imagination Station’s vision is to provide children with opportunities to learn, socialize, and play and to provide parents with opportunities to network, share, relax, and attend educational programs. Imagination Station also strives to create long-term, meaningful connections with the community. These goals will be achieved through interactive exhibits, scheduled child and/or parent programming, and shared parenting resources. Specifically, Imagination Station's vision is to become a destination for high quality family interaction that:

  • encourages parents to play interactively with their children

  • encourages participation in this community resource (i.e., Imagination Station) by every member

  • recognizes and supports diversity in our community

  • promotes ethical and socially responsible children 

  • partners with other programs in the community that hold the value of family play and education

  • advances knowledge about children by sharing evidence-based information on parenting and children's development

  • offers self guided and social opportunities to be creative, foster writing and reading skills, imaginative play, and gross and fine motor skills

 

In regard to service to our community, Imagination Station will

  • host at least one free family event per year open to the community

  • provide at least one, but as many as possible, sponsored memberships per year to families with limited resources.

  • partner with at least one, but as many as possible, organization(s) per year that support families and children in need (e.g., Hope House, Safe Homes, Head Start).
