Alum of the Year
The Children’s Garden is boldly branching out with an all-outdoor program that supports our children during a time of so many unknowns.
Branching Out, is teaching us all to try something new. Every day, our fearless teachers are reinforcing the power of imagination as a source of play, comfort, and possibility. The setting may be slightly different (and a bit more muddy!) than in the past, but the takeaways are as clear and steady as they have always been; the Garden nurtures confidence, courage, and authenticity so that every child knows they are valued for being their own, unique self. These qualities remain at the heart of the Branching Out program, just as they always have been in our classroom.
Our alumni carry their Garden experience – and their bravery – with them when they leave the Garden.
Each year as part of our Homecoming celebration, we honor a graduate who embodies the values of the Garden. This year, we have chosen to honor all of The Children’s Garden Alumni who work in the health care industry. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we hold a special appreciation for those who are bravely working on the front lines in our hospitals and in the health care field.
