Kids in the Garden

Is your 3- to 5-year-old child interested in things that grow, fly or crawl? Designed especially for preschoolers, our once a week four-week program will teach kids about the many parts of a garden, from birds to bugs and lots in between. Each week covers a different topic (see below). At each class, we will read a story, do an art project, sing a song, have snack time, and get out into the garden!

Children must be accompanied by a parent or other adult caregiver.

When: Tuesdays, 10-11:30 am. See below for upcoming sessions.

Where: Bellevue Botanical Garden, 12001 Main Street, Bellevue WA 98005.

Cost:

  • BBGS Members: Each four-week class is $70 per child. Each additional child is $52.50.
  • Non-Members: Each four-week class is $100 per child. Each additional child is $75.

Space is limited to 12 children in each session.
