The Children’s Garden is a parent participation program that believes that children learn best through play. Our program serves children ages 3-5.

We believe:

  • There is interconnectedness between children, family, and the community.
  • Each adult and child is valuable as an individual, capable of reaching his or her potential, when supported and encouraged by best practices.
  • Learning occurs through active participation, which honors the process over the product in a developmentally appropriate environment.
  • Parent and teacher cooperation is an integral part of child learning

Program requirements

Toilet Training – As a developmental pre-school, we understand that toilet training is different for each child and we strive to work with families who are in the process of getting to this developmental milestone. Our facility is not equipped for diaper changing, but we frequently have children come to school in pull-ups as they are transitioning to full-time and independent toilet use.

Parent Education Classes

The program requires a once monthly parent education class that takes place one Thursday each month from 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. Classes are taught by Cathy Bailey and Sandi Hill. Various topics are covered and discussion and questions are encouraged.
