What is Vroom?
Vroom is an initiative of the Bezos Family Foundation based on the premise that every child is born with enormous potential and every parent has the ability to help them realize that potential. Developed by leaders in the fields of neuroscience, child development and behavioral economics, Vroom translates leading research on early brain development into meaningful and actionable activities for families. Vroom has 1000+ free bilingual tips that are easy, interactive things caregivers can do in the time they already share with their children that don’t require additional time or money.
Vroom for Caregivers
During mealtime, bath time and any time in your daily routine, there are easy ways to nurture your child’s growing mind. The Daily Vroom app makes it easy to access fun Vroom activities any time to make the most of those precious years when the foundation for all future learning is happening.
Get a peek at how it works by watching the Daily Vroom Video, and then download the free app to your smartphone for daily brain building fun on the go. You can also check out the Museum’s Vroom kiosk during your next visit.

Vroom for Organizations
To help improve early education for children in Wisconsin, the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum has launched Vroom in partnership with the Herzfeld Foundation and the Bezos Family Foundation. The Museum is an anchor agency in the state of Wisconsin collaborating with social service and community agencies, schools, childcare providers, faith-based groups, museums, corporate and civic leaders, and other family-friendly organizations committed to sharing information about parent engagement and early learning to drive understanding about the critical role caregivers play in early brain development. Together, these organizations will provide adults with ways to boost early learning through programming, local resources and activities like the Daily Vroom app. If your organization would like to join Vroom, contact the Museum’s Director of Community Engagement and Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 414-390-5437, ext. 243.
