Creating a beautiful GARDEN builds character, responsibility, and reliability in a joyful learning environment.

A – all of the senses are involved and sensory learning is memorable learning!
R – roots are the foundation of long lasting and beautiful memories and reminders of children’s time at Woodland.
D – digging, planting, watering, growing, and harvesting teach follow through and dedication.
