Children’s Museum to Open in Southern Calfornia

Catherine Welch

We are excited to announce the formation of the Southern California Children’s Museum (SCCM) and our kick-off event on Thursday, July 11, 2013 from 5 to 8 pm at the Arroyo Seco Miniature Golf Course in South Pasadena. The SCCM will be located in the San Gabriel Valley and fill an important void in early childhood educational experiences.
Founded by Pasadena-area moms, SCCM will be located in the San Gabriel Valley and will have an emphasis on the local arts and culture found in our Southern California region. The museum will be primarily designed for children under the age of eight. Exhibits and activities will be play-based and focused on developing a child’s gross and fine motor skills, while incorporating dramatic play elements. Our goal is to bring an environment focused on early childhood education to our newest generation while offering them a place to create lifelong memories.
Guests at the July 11 celebration will learn about the museum’s current happenings, enjoy refreshments and participate in a fabulous golf raffle. Kids are welcome to attend. Guests will also have the opportunity to contribute to the Founder’s Campaign. To receive an invitation or to RSVP, email Arroyo Seco Miniature Golf Course is located at 1055 Lohman Lane, South Pasadena.
