Family programs FAQ

CAN I BRING MY GROUP TO THE PROGRAM?

Family Days and Design Kids are intended for families. We are unable to accommodate groups.

CAN I LEAVE MY CHILD?

Caretakers must remain with their child for the duration of the program.

WHAT IS MY ROLE AS THE CAREGIVER IN THIS PROGRAM?

We require that caregivers actively participate in our workshops. Cooper Hewitt educators lead and facilitate a fun, family-friendly design project. Caregivers are responsible for helping their child with their individual projects and are expected to manage any behavioral challenges that might be disruptive to the group. Caretakers must stay with their child for the duration of the program.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A PROGRAM?

All family programming is on a first-come, first-serve basis. You cannot reserve a ticket online. We recommend arriving to the event location fifteen minutes before scheduled programming begins to ensure a spot.  If the program is full when you arrive, we invite you to join a later session.
