First-Time Parent Membership

The early months of childhood lay the foundation for all that is to come. A baby’s first learning experiences deeply affect their future physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. Madison Children’s Museum provides a learning space that fosters early learning with exhibits and programs designed to respect children’s varied developmental levels, physical and emotional needs, and learning styles.
