Early Childhood Education

GrowingGreat’s early childhood programs focus on hands-on STEM in garden and nutrition education. We provide professional development to teachers who blend GrowingGreat’s multicultural program into their existing curriculum. We also work directly in the classroom, engaging students with hands-on, garden-inspired activities from All About Apples to Wiggly Worms. At Maple Primary, we make a special effort to reach students with disabilities (approximately 14% of students district-wide), customizing our activities to their needs. All activities include read-aloud stories and sing-along songs in addition to healthy snacks.
