About the GPS Summer School Program:

Thanks to a grant received by the Greenwich Public Schools from the Greenwich Alliance for Education, the Garden Education Center of Greenwich will be running enrichment programs for students in all grades attending summer school at Cos Cob and Hamilton Avenue Schools.  We’re writing in summer garden journals, and connecting to our food and weather cycles.

 

On-site Enrichment:

You can sign up your 3-11 year old for our next Sprouts & Seedlings Summer enrichment program at the GEC.  Our theme is  “Summer Journals:  Maps, Sketches, Stories, Doodles, and Searches!” (CLICK HERE TO REGISTER) We’ll invite guest experts to help us explore and stretch our imaginations in the garden and Pinetum.  We’ve been building this program with fellow colleagues in Nature-based early-childhood education, and just can’t wait to welcome you for some summer young-naturalist play!
