FAMILY AND EDUCATOR WORKSHOPS

It takes a village to raise a child, but sometimes that village is difficult to find. Through Adventures in Learning, I strive to create a community that supports every stage of learning. From the tiniest farm friends to adults. 

Workshops and parenting groups are provided to help adults educate and parent children of all ages. Parenting groups are organized by topics relevant to raising children today, while educator workshops are designed to support child development in the classroom. 

 

WHINE WITH GOATS

This parenting group offers a safe and inviting space for parents and other caregivers to interact with other adults while discussing parenting topics.
