The Worcester Child Development Head Start Program has partnered with the Worcester Art Museum for the past two years. Although our visits to the art museum were cut short this year due to the pandemic, this rich and meaningful partnership offers our children, families, and staff the opportunity to experience the world of art through visits to art galleries and art studios. These experiences spark children’s interest and excitement while supporting the development of their knowledge of the creative arts. Topics of study are then extended into our Head Start classrooms and ateliers so that children can continue to explore and expand their knowledge.
We are so very grateful to the staff of the Worcester Art Museum for their unwavering support of the children, families, and staff of our program and we look forward to continuing this partnership moving forward.
