Spring Farmergarten 2022 (Ages 4-6)  January 24-June 8 (no class 2/21, 4/11, 4/13, 5/30)

Mondays and Wednesdays -  9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Our Farmergarten class returns for the 2022 winter/spring session! 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 and farm curator 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.  

Class will be cancelled if Stamford Public Schools are closed or delayed. Children must turn 4 by April 1, 2021 to enroll. 

Members: $1250 (36 classes) | Non-members: $1450 (36 classes)
