Early Childhood Programs
Most brain development in children happens in the first eight years, and much of it in the first three. Nature education programs at the Garden are a fantastic way to promote your child's development.

For questions on registering children between the ages of 30-36 months, please contact the Children's Education Registrar at 480-481-8121.
