WHAT AGE RANGE IS THE MUSEUM GEARED TOWARD?
WHAT IS AN OTTER COVE FOUNDING MEMBER?
Founding members who donate $50 will be included on early pilot play opportunities beginning in November 2019. These will be by invitation only and are intended to allow the designers to adapt the play structure based upon how children interact with it. Invitations will be sent to the founding members group and will be limited to the amount of children the designers are targeting. Becoming a founding member does not automatically guarantee your spot. It does guarantee you an invitation!
If you are interested in becoming a founding member, donate today!
CAN I DROP MY CHILD OFF OR AM I REQUIRED TO ACCOMPANY MY CHILD THROUGHOUT THE MUSEUM?
