FAQs

Yes! Kids Garden has regular after school package options and your child can always drop in! Art Lab & Studio classes are offered from 3:30-5:30, however your child can drop in at any time. For those that join after school regularly our goal is to enhance each session with projects, participation and learning.

Unlike many traditional schools, Kids Garden is a drop-in facility! This means there are no asks, supplies, or requirements from parents. We encourage parents to enjoy some “me” time during Art Lab & Studio Programming class hours.

You can do either! Discounted monthly packages or prepaid hour packages are designed for children who attend our centers regularly. Our daily and weekly schedules are consistent so children can also drop in as needed.

Our art class curriculum is geared for children ages 4 and up. If your child is under the age of 4, they can still drop in! We always have differentiated learning opportunities for children of any age during our Art Lab & Studio Programs.

Absolutely. In our registration form, we ask several questions that will help us get to know your child and accommodate his or her learning style and social needs. We ask that all participants agree to our community agreements and classroom safety. Should a child consistently disrupt the flow and learning of our Art Lab & Studio programs, they will be removed.

As always, we offer creative learning at all hours for all children. If your child is in the center during our afternoon enrichment classes, they will continue to take part in enrichment activities that are in line with the scheduled art class for the day. We differentiate the learning and offer a variety of activities to accommodate all learners. If they are not signed up for the class they, will still take part in art education.
