Kids Play Garden

Pre-School & Drop-In Creative Arts Learning Center Your children can learn, explore, create and interact with old and new friends, get exercise, enjoy music, take part in circle time, learn a new yoga pose, try a new instrument, or become an exciting character while engaging in pretend play.

Kids Garden encourages individual growth in a natural and open learning environment.

Operating as usual

One of the cornerstones of the Reggio Emilia Approach is to have hands on natural materials as often as possible. Research shows that nature inspires feelings that connect us to each other, and to our environment. It's also proven to light up the parts of the brain associated with empathy and love πŸŒ²β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Did I mention we're creating while connecting with the Earth?! We couldn't think of many things more important. πŸ’š

Eco Art: One of our personal favorite afternoon enrichment classes! Combining nature & art, what could be better!? 🌿

Come join us for an afternoon of sensory fun, on Monday, February 15th πŸ’š


The pride we witness children feel when they are proud of something they created - it’s priceless! πŸ’š

We love pretending there is snow inside, and getting creative! 🎨

Isn’t that right? 🀣🀣🀣

Kids Yoga in the afternoons! The perfect time for parents to drop off, get some errands done - and pick up on zen kiddo! πŸ’š

[12/17/20]   We are interviewing to add to our team! Please share if you know a creative individual that could grow in our garden.

Kids Garden is an eco-friendly creative arts learning center. Our centers are built on community, offering families peace of mind in all that we do. We are seeking educators and energetic individuals to bring fun to learning for children ages 12 months (and walking) to 12 years old. Creative play is the heart of our center. We encourage children to learn through play as well as structured classes and activities (preschool, kids yoga, drawing/painting/sculpting, lego learning, motivational movement, recycled building and more). We are also launching a new after school and outdoors Junior Explorers Club!

We have a diversified staff bringing all areas of expertise and are looking for individuals that have flexibility, enjoy teamwork, multitasking, entertaining and inspiring children, communicating with parents, exploring areas of art, working with an energetic and outgoing staff, creating activities, and most important having fun!

Please apply if interested and one of our directors will be in touch to set up an interview.

Join us this Friday!βœ¨β„οΈ
