CWRU, natural history museum partner for one-day child care program

Case Western Reserve and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History are partnering again this month to provide a one-day program for children of faculty, staff and students.

Held on Rosh Hashanah (Thursday, Sept. 21), the session will include a focus on fossils; a planetarium show; and a visit to the museum’s new exhibit, “Creatures of Light.” Young people also will be able to spend time in the Smead Discovery Center and the Ralph Perkins II Wildlife Center & Woods Garden – Presented by KeyBank.

Coordinated through the President’s Committee on Child Care Options (PCCCO), the session will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with check-in beginning at 8:30 a.m. The session costs $50 per child, and slots are limited. Participants will receive morning and afternoon snacks but must bring a sack lunch. Registration information can be found at account.cmnh.org/auxiliary/Reserve.aspx?p=21344.

In addition, the president’s office has supported financial assistance for PCCCO camps to families with household incomes of $50,000 or less. Those with questions about financial assistance and their eligibility can contact Human Resources Manager Amy Sheldon at amy.sheldon@case.edu or 216.368.5000.
