Activities for Families with Young Children

Families with infants to preschool-aged kids

Early childhood education is a vital part of our overall education line-up and we recognize the significance of a variety of stimulating experiences for a child’s brain growth and development. Equally important, these programs are fun for children and parents alike.

Programs - Children’s Groups

The Lena Meijer Children’s Garden presents imaginative, child-friendly activities to help families navigate ten areas of the Children’s Garden. Cards provide suggestions for three age/difficulty levels.
