About South Windermere Kids Garden
As the demand for drop in creative arts learning for children grows, so has our “garden”! Our 2nd Kids Garden opened in 2015 and is located just West of The Charleston Peninsula over the Ashley River in the South Windermere Shopping Center. We are positioned amongst great retail shopping, antique stores, yoga studio, wellness center and Earth Fare, natural grocery store. The trailhead to the West Ashley Greenway is steps away, so parents can drop their children off and go biking or running on this 7.8 mile scenic trail through wetlands and low country beauty! With just a short drive to Folly Beach, this adds another level of experiences for locals and tourists to enjoy while we engage their children in creative play, music, dance and art!!

Originally from San Diego, Ms. Carol had recently moved to Charleston and was applying to jobs that dealt with children when Kids Garden found her. She loves everything about working here and seeing so many of the children grow and create their own personalities, and hearing the funny things they have to say. It’s hard to pick just one favorite memory, but the moment children started asking other staff where Ms. Carol was when she was home visiting her family made her feel like she was really making an impact on these children. You would be surprised to learn that Ms. Carol is an Irish twin! When she was younger, she always wanted to be a teacher and a mom when she grew up.
Ms. Savannah is originally from Paris, Tennessee. She was drawn to Kids Garden’s clean and natural vibes, and their eco-friendly practices. She loves the way Kids Garden instills a love for the outdoors and the Earth in their children. Some accomplishments she is most proud of include: graduating with a degree in Family & Consumer sciences with a concentration in Child and Family Studies, and moving to Charleston to pursue her career in advocating for children. Ms. Savannah plans on getting her Master’s Degree to one day become an Elementary or Middle School Guidance Counselor. Her favorite things to do in her free time are spend time at Folly Beach, shop around the markets downtown, taste new restaurants and ride her bike! Ms. Savannah’s favorite part about being a teacher is watching the children’s excitement as they greet her in the morning. She hopes sharing little lessons with the children will be memories that hold onto for years to come – the joy and privilege of being a teacher!
