It’s always fun to hear what kids cook up! Apples in your eggs? Okay! Comin’ right up! 🍳

Children’s mental health isn’t often talked about, or it’s talked about in different ways, like social and emotional learning. However it’s phrased in your world, make sure it’s a topic of conversation! Here some ways we can support the development of healthy habits early on… 💜

Technology, engineering, and math explored through collaborations and creations in our super cool STEM camp. Children’s creativity will be challenged as they build Lego structures, explore and construct airplanes, problem-solve, make crazy concoctions, and engage in hands on experiences. Come play AND learn with us! ⚙️


Some afternoons were just meant to be spent drawing amongst new friends. 🎨


Geology Rocks! Camp starts next week! Dig in deep as we explore rocks and minerals and have fun rock testing and experimenting as geologists and paleontologists. Break geodes, examine fossils and shark teeth, learn about volcanoes and all the amazing aspects of Earth Science!

Check out one of our favorite art projects! It’s an easy one to do at home too! 🎨

We’ve been having so much fun at camp so far this summer. We’ve danced, played, sang, created, read stories and so much more! Check out the camps we’ve got left on our website and give us a call to reserve your spot at our special summer camp rates. Drop-in is always an option too! 🌿

Have you ever wondered how Kids Garden got its start? 🌿

How it all began...
Maren first had the idea for Kids Garden when she set out to find a secure, stimulating, nurturing childcare environment for her son—one that didn’t require cumbersome contracts or hefty monthly fees.
It didn’t exist. So she created it.
Putting her Masters in Education and holistic health degrees to work, Maren built an all-new playcare from the ground up. She designed it for the children, of course: a magical, whimsical place where young minds could explore what it means to be a kid. But she made parents a priority too, by providing plenty of flexible options so they could drop in as needed.
After years of traveling the world, hiking her way through national parks, farming, teaching and entrepreneuring, Maren is putting her vast array of skills to work for the people who matter most in our communities—the little ones. Today, the original seeds of Kids Garden have blossomed into a thriving, growing community with numerous locations and more on the way…and an open door policy for parents and family in need of a safe, educational playspace where kids are excited to be.

We hope you enjoy the holiday with some loved ones and some fun! 🇺🇸

Research has shown the importance of friendship, and its impact on mental and physical health, starting in the earliest years. Preschool friendships are supportive of the development of social and emotional skills, as well as in increasing a sense of belonging and community. This feeling is the foundation of all learning! Children must feel safe and loved before they can learn. It's one of our greatest joys and privileges as teachers to support the cultivation of these relationships 🌱
