It is time to explore in The Gardens! Join us for garden story time, movement or song plus a hands-on nature inspired activity. Specifically designed to connect young learners to their natural world, this program promotes the development of school readiness skills including early language comprehension, fine and gross motor skills, creativity, and multicultural understandings. This is a parent/caregiver participation class.
