Join us on the farm for Story Time in the Garden! During this two-week program on Tuesdays and Thursdays, you and your family will explore the blooming City Green gardens through storytelling, nature-based play, and spring planting activities. This program will take place fully outdoors with COVID-safety policies to ensure you and your preschooler stay safe while having fun. Participants are required to bring enough water bottles to last each class. Feel free to send your child with their own hand sanitizer. Participants and staff will be required to wear a face covering entering and exiting the program and throughout the program. The fee is $5.00 per family. Instruction by: City Green. Limit is 5 families per session.
Story time in Garden is open to Clifton Residents ONLY. Unfortunately, due to state re-opening guidelines as a result of COVID-19, non-residents will not be eligible to register for programs at this time. Pre-registration online is required. In-person registration is not permitted at this time due to COVID-19 guidelines.
Participants will be required to have a temperature check and health assessment upon arrival at the program each week before you and your children are allowed to participate. Parents must wear a face covering, maintain social distancing, and stay with their children until everyone has been tested and approved. You can begin arriving 15 minutes before the program is scheduled to begin to allow time for the health assessment and temperature testing. Please be patient as this process will take some time to complete.
