Collaborative Learning at the Delray Beach Children's Garden 

Beginning September 18 DBCG will be offering a 3-hour educational class on Tuesday's from 10 am - 1 pm. Nature Education Cooperative will offer hands-on educational curriculum in science, math, language and the arts for children ages 3-7 in our beautiful outdoor classroom. Using Montessori learning tools, child-led learning concepts, and a nature school philosophy, we will journey together on an empowering collaborative learning experience. 

Parent/Caregiver participation is required in our cooperative program. Nature Education Cooperative will also coordinate monthly educational nature field trips to various locations (optional/entry costs may apply).
