KIDS IN THE GARDEN
A Science Discovery Program for Preschoolers

 

Is your 3-5 year-old child interested in things that grow, fly or crawl? Designed especially for preschoolers, our 4-week program will teach kids about the many parts of a garden, from birds to bugs and lots in between.

Classes are taught by an experienced preschool science teacher. The curriculum is based on “Growing Wild” and is part of “Project Learning Tree,” a nationally recognized science program.

Each week covers a different topic.

Our next Kids in the Garden session will take place in Summer 2017. The summer session begins on July 18, 2017 and will meet for four Tuesdays from 10:00 - 11:30am.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or other significant adult (grandparent, aunt/uncle, close friend, etc.). At each class we will read a story, do an art project, sing a song, eat a snack and get out into the garden!
