How can I be sure to get the camps/early childhood programs I want?
The best way is to become a Perot Museum member and register online during priority registration (typically 2 weeks prior to open registration). Please visit the membership area to purchase, renew, or upgrade a membership online or contact us at 214.756.5751.
How can I find out which camps/early childhood programs are filled?
Program sessions with online enrollment have their availability updated in real time. If you are registering by phone then the attendant should be able to provide up-to-date enrollment information.
What are the qualifications of your teachers and assistants?
Our camp teachers are either certified teachers with backgrounds in science or science professionals with extensive informal education experience. Our early childhood teachers all have a degree in education with early childhood coursework and experience or CDA, or are enrolled in a college pursuing an education or science degree. The majority of our teaching assistants are participants in our youth volunteer program. All teachers are certified in basic CPR/First Aid.
How are children supervised?
Parents or guardians are required to physically sign children in and out of classes every day. Children are supervised at all times and are escorted on restroom breaks.
