KIDSWORK CARES is our response to a very real, community-wide need. This program enables us to provide special days, services and events to local children's charities, schools, organizations, and families in need.

​Donations to the KIDSWORK CARES fund will be used throughout the year to provide children the gift of interactive play through free field trips and play passes. 


KCM Volunteer Spotlight:  Pat D’Errico  ---  Story Time with Miss Pat

    Pat D’Errico brings enthusiasm and years of teaching experience to KidsWork Children's Museum. She has been volunteering for 4 years and originally learned about the museum by bringing her niece and nephew to play.  She saw their excitement and had such a great time, she decided to volunteer. Having taught kindergarten, primary grades and beyond, she knew what to look for in a nurturing and caring environment so she was sure she was in the right place at KidsWork!  She loves teaching Tuesday morning Story Time with Miss Pat because it gives her little listeners a love for stories and reading along with arts and crafts activities that correlate with the stories. She believes that KidsWork Museum is such an important part of the community as it offers a caring and supportive environment for children to learn and grow. She encourages everyone to visit to enjoy a special time with their children!
