We welcome homeschooled families to eat their lunches in the park and visit before the start of the program.

We recognize that homeschooled families often have children of a variety of ages, so each Homeschooler Monday we will offer a Primary program targeted for ages 5-8 but all ages are welcome.

Registration is limited to 30 children in the Primary programs.

Fees are $7/child. There is no charge for parent/guardian chaperones attending the programs with their children OR for younger siblings in attendance who are too young for the programs.

Location: Explorers Urban Garden (Right beside The Exploration Place)
