The Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center (SEEC) offers a rich learning environment for children, parents, and teachers in our community and at the same time extends its innovative practices to professionals in schools and museums through an educational outreach program.
For those of us who enjoy learning new ideas through the wonders of museums, SEEC is an exciting experience.
The mission of the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center is two-fold: to provide a high-quality educational program for young children, and to advance educational opportunities for all children by sharing SEEC's expertise on a national level, thereby furthering the education mandate of the Smithsonian Institution.
SEEC's educational philosophy encourages respect for the child and recognizes the unique nature of the individual.
Hands-on exploration and discovery, both in the classroom and the museum, offer a chance to construct knowledge from personal experience.
Through the comprehensive collections housed in the Washington community, children develop an understanding of the diversity of the world.
