Preschool Wednesday is a literacy-based program designed to meet the needs of preschoolers and their grown-ups, as well as to provide a safe, outdoor space for experiential learning. Most appropriate for children ages 18 months to 5 years old, our programs offer families the opportunity to participate in story-time, experience farm life and have fun outdoors on the 4.5 acre historic site.
Gates open at 10am. Students and their families are invited to be active participants in the educational activities stationed throughout the farm. Stations shut down promptly at noon. Participants are welcome to stay and enjoy the grounds with time for a picnic lunch until gates close at 2pm.
