The Bayou Country Children’s Museum has announced their plans to update their Toddler Town Exhibition to create a more developmentally appropriate space for children  24 months old and younger. This space will allow infants and toddlers to explore the world around them in a safe, designated area that will promote the development of several integral milestones at this age. 

Made possible by the Danos Family, the space will feature: a soft, foam interactive climbing course to promote the development of gross motor and coordination skills as well as promote color and shape differentiation; a texture wall that will mimic what you might see and feel along the bayou to support appropriate sensory input processing and motor outputs; an alligator tactile wall that will enhance fine motor skills such as pinching and dexterity. 

“At the Bayou Country Children’s Museum, we recognize the importance of play and its role in the development of the child. We are very thankful to the Danos  Family and their passion for our community’s children,” said Arianna Mace, Director.
