The Imajine That Museum is a Certified B Corporation and a first of its kind family and child interactive play space where human potential has no boundaries. Our unique 12,000 square foot play space located at the Riverwalk in Lawrence, offers an environment where families can create and learn together in a safe and educational manner. Imajine That's "Imagination Stations" include a child sized Whole Foods® grocery store, a HUGE dinosaur climbing structure, Between the Lions® literacy area, Peep and the Big Wide World® Science Station, just to name a few.
In addition to the museum, Imajine That also offers full day family engagement preschool programs called Imajine That University located at the Riverwalk Lawrence. Imajine That also offers extended learning day programs in the Boston Public Schools and Lawrence Public Schools. Each of the schools Imajine That works with has a customized curriculum to meet the needs of the school and children.
Imajine That provides education and enrichment for children in the preschool and elementary years. With a play-based approach, Imajine That follows all National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines for developmentally appropriate practices. Practices include an intentional focus on (1) social and emotional development, (2) oral language development (speaking, listening, and vocabulary), (3) early literacy learning (especially phonemic awareness, phonics, and listening comprehension), and (4) exploration of STEM topics through highly engaging interactive play. Art and music are incorporated into many activities. Imajine That uses educational technology from award-winning producers (e.g. the science games from Peep in the Big Wide World produced by WGBH, a PBS affiliate) to enhance learning experiences with iPad technology. And, finally, but very importantly, foundational to the Imajine That approach are physical activity and a healthy way of eating.
