Kids' Corner 2019

New York Encounter Kids’ Corner

Saturday & Sunday
Activities with Kids (all ages welcome)

10:30—11:30 | 2:30—3:30 ǀ 4:30—5:30

Each day we'll share a snack together at 4 p.m.

The Kids' Corner is a simple and beautiful way to answer the needs of families who bring their kids to the New York Encounter. More than a “drop off” place, the Kids' Corner is a place of encounters—where kids can play together and parents from all parts of the world can meet and talk.

During the day there are activities organized by parents: art, crafts, singing, and storytelling. For children 6 and older, guided tours will be given for some exhibits, especially geared for them!

The Kids' Corner is open to all kids, with the older ones helping the little ones. One of the moms who came to Kids' Corner in the past years shared: “The Kids' Corner was the occasion of meeting moms and families from other states. Immediately it was a familiar place. We shared many beautiful moments with the children that I kept with me the whole year long, back home in Indiana.”

Note: Children at Kid's Corner must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver at ALL times.
