Educator Resources


The Children's Museum of the Upstate seeks to be a resource for educators in our region to continue our mission to spark a lifelong passion for curiosity and learning through play in the classroom.

TCMU is working to bring teachers new resources in 2017 starting with an educator Facebook page, an educator blog section, and a monthly e-newsletter:
