CLASSES

Our policy for class registrations:
Payment in full is required to register your child for a class/camp/workshop. Class/camp/workshop fees are fully refundable up until fourteen days before the start date. Refunds will not be given for absences or “no-shows.”

We reserve the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment. Fees for classes cancelled by the museum will be fully refundable.

Our winter snow policy follows that of the Oak Ridge School System: if Oak Ridge schools are closed for a snow emergency, the museum is closed and classes are cancelled. If museum classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, they will be made up or rescheduled. The safety of our visitors is our primary concern.

Below are the current listings for SPECIAL CLASSES, ARTS and CRAFTS, PRESCHOOL, POTTERY, HOME SCHOOL, GIRL SCOUTS, and KIDS GO GREEN! classes.

For registration information, see the links to the left in the green sidebar.

Safe Sitters: Babysitting Education Class

Register now for Methodist’s 2016 Safe Sitters Babysitting Camp, which will take place at the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge on Thursday, June 16, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  This one-day class is open to 11 to 13-year-old girls and boys who want to learn safe babysitting techniques and how to handle emergencies when caring for children.  Participants will learn how to perform CPR on infants and toddlers, calm fussy or upset children, change diapers, learn games and crafts, and other skills they can use when they babysit.

Safe Sitters is a medically-accurate program that teaches boys and girls ages 11 to 13 how to handle emergencies when caring for children. This class teaches safe and nurturing child care techniques, behavior management skills, and appropriate responses to medical emergencies. Instructors are members of Methodist Medical Center’s staff.

The cost is $45 for Children’s Museum members or $50 for non-members and includes all materials. Participants should bring a sack lunch.

Space is limited, so register early!
