The Greensboro Children’s Museum re-opened on May 29, 2021, after months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the museum was closed, several exhibits were added or updated, including Tot Spot, an area specially designed for infants and toddlers.

The new Tot Spot features The Basics Guilford, five fun, science-based parenting and caregiving concepts that anyone can do. Ready for School, Ready for Life (Ready Ready) is pleased to present The Basics. They are:

  • Maximize Love, Manage Stress
  • Talk, Sing, and Point
  • Count, Group, and Compare
  • Explore through Movement and Play
  • Read and Discuss Stories

Each one of The Basics is explained in Tot Spot, with a QR code parents can scan with their mobile devices. The code opens up The Basics Guilford website where parents can watch videos and learn more quick and easy tips to explore the tips. 

Ready Ready staff members were on hand for the Kickoff to Summer reopening event at the museum on May 29, 2021 to share The Basics Guilford materials and explain how they work to parents and caregivers.
