Collaborative Learning at the Delray Beach Children's Garden 

Nature Education Cooperative offers hands-on educational curriculum in science, math, language and the arts for children ages 3-7 in our beautiful outdoor classroom. This 3-hour educational class meets every Tuesday's from 10 am - 1 pm (excluding some holiday weeks). Using Montessori learning tools, child-led learning concepts, and a nature school philosophy, we will journey together on an empowering collaborative learning experience. 

Session 2 is now FULL. Thank you for applying. Waitlisted families will be notified if room becomes available. Session 3 applications will launch April 3.

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).
