Our Approach

As lifelong residents of Baraboo, Jed and Traci Crouse have always desired to serve the community that has served them. With 25+ combined years of children’s education and entertainment experience, they have embraced a wealth of knowledge, research, and resources perfect for providing hands-on learning to children in Baraboo and the surrounding areas.

Our Story

In December of 2016, Jed and Traci, along with their two kids, Andrew-3 years and Maci-9 months, visited a children’s museum in Kansas City while on vacation. The Crouse family had such a fun time exploring all the different themed rooms that it was hard to leave. The kids were engaged in play at their own levels, were able to choose and explore their interests, and learn while interacting with their peers and hands-on exhibits.

On the trip home, an idea was born. Both Jed and Traci came to the conclusion that Baraboo area children and families deserved to have these same experiences. Much of the driving time was spent dreaming of how to make this idea a reality!
