Bring the StoryBus to You
Bring the StoryBus to your school! The cost is $600 for the full day. (We do not offer half-days.) Or you can make the most of the StoryBus visit by including professional development for your pre-k and kindergarten teachers. Each teacher attends five workshops of three hours each, over a five-month period. The workshops are implemented by the Erikson Institute. At the workshops, each of your teachers will receive
* A StoryBus curriculum guide
* Five storybooks
* A storytelling DVD
Additionally, your teachers will earn CPDUs.
The StoryBus storyteller will visit your school to perform a live telling, and when the StoryBus comes to the school, it will stay for the whole day, plus 45 minutes after the close of school to act as part of a family literacy workshop your teachers learn to conduct. The cost of this enhanced version of the program is $700 (so it's only $100 more than the basic StoryBus visit). For information about the full StoryBus program, see the description in the Educators' section. If you would like the StoryBus to come to your school, please contact us!
StoryBus can make your event family friendly! We're Chicago's only children's museum on wheels. For non-profit events that are closed to the public, the cost of a day is $700; for non-profit events that are open to the public, the cost is $1,700 for the day. For all other events, the cost is $3,400 per day, with a discount available for multiple days. If you would like the StoryBus to come to your event, please contact us!
