Hedda Sharapan Visits Our Neighborhood

DuPage Children’s Museum offers a presentation Just for Grown-Ups!

          October 26, 2014 from 3:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. at                 DuPage Children's Museum

Hedda Sharapan visited DuPage Children's Museum (DCM) in 2012 to share her wisdom on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) as well as the value and importance of creating lasting, memorable relationships with the children in our lives.
This year Sharapan visits to share knowledge and expertise on engaging children and families in XOXO: An Exhibit about Love & Forgiveness. Her presentation will focus on developing resiliency skills in children. With warmth, humor, and humanness, Hedda Sharapan will share what she has learned about love and forgiveness—about building, maintaining, and repairing relationships (for all of us, young and old alike)—from her 48 years at The Fred Rogers Company and a master’s degree in Child Development.  Sharapan worked closely with Fred Rogers beginning in 1966. Together they wrote books for children and parents and authored professional development materials for early childhood educators. Ms.Sharapan is now the Director of Early Childhood Initiatives with the Fred Rogers Company. XOXO is DCM's newest traveling exhibit borrowed from a museum right in Sharapan's neighborhood! The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh has loaned XOXO to DCM through February 1, 2015. Don't miss this opportunity to engage the children in your lives in experiential activities all about love, forgiveness, and the emotions they feel!
