Is your 3- to 5-year-old child interested in things that grow, fly or crawl?

Designed especially for preschoolers, Kids in the Garden is our once a week four-week program that teaches 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.  Space is limited to 12 children in each session.


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

(Additional Wednesday class series will be offered in summer 2023)


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