They recognized the lack of economical, educational, and safe activities for young children and their families in the area. By combining their experience with childcare, funding of non-profits, and public service, the Board of Directors plans to create a successful children’s museum in downtown Mount Pleasant. What does this mean for you? As businesses already located in the downtown area you will have the biggest reward due to this opening.
