Special Events in the Garden

 

Little Learners Montessori and Stay and Play afterschool invite children and their parents to come and play with us. We will be running special events each season and these will be advertised in ABCD and on www.littlelearners.com

The idea behind the garden is to create an innovative outdoor play space that will inspire and encourage children and bring families together to create fun and memories. The theme of the garden is to reuse and recreate items and everyone is invited to make and display their own art.
