Fall Farmergarten 2021 (Ages 4-6) Mondays and Wednesdays, September 20-December 15; 9:00 am-12:00 pm
Our Farmergarten class returns for the 2021-2022 school year! Designed for students who are not looking for a full week preschool experience, Farmergarten provides many of the traditional aspects of preschool with amazing hands-on experiences on our Heckscher Farm and with our animals. Students will plant and harvest in the garden, work directly with our farm and exotic animals, help with seasonal farm chores, all while exploring the museum's trails and grounds. Held in our private Heckscher Barn classroom, Farmergarten is taught by our environmental education staff. While it won't include all aspects of preschool (such as formal parent-teacher conferences), students will work on educational benchmarks, in addition to motor and vestibular sense skills, through free play and hands-on exploration. Staff will also provide feedback to parents throughout the year.
This year, the program will run in two semesters-- fall and winter/spring. Students may sign up for one or both. Winter/Spring registration will be opened to fall students before the general public.
Class will be cancelled if Stamford Public Schools are closed or delayed. Children must turn 4 by November 1, 2021. Students should pack a nut-free snack and drink each day. Late, prorated registrations are available as space allows.
No class on 10/11.
Members: $825 (25 classes) | Non-members: $900 (25 classes)
