ABC’s gardening environment engages children by providing an interactive environment to observe, discover, experiment, nurture and learn. Each child gets to witness the garden grow over a period of months.
Studies have shown that school gardens encourage preference and consumption of fruits and vegetables, increase parental support and involvement, and improve childrens’ enthusiasm about preschool/child care, teamwork skills and self-understanding. Gardens can be easily integrated into classroom learning and can be as simple as a raised bed or a few containers. Below is a list of resources to help you start and sustain your preschool garden.

Testimonials About ABC Children's Center
We were lucky enough to take a tour of ABC at a time when one spot opened up in their infant program, and snagged the spot.
I have two grandchildren that have been attending ABC for several years. The oldest is thriving in kindergarten now! Having started at ABC at 17 months old, I believe ABC had a great hand in preparing her.
My daughter has been going here since she was 15 year old. She is now almost 4 years. She transitioned through different classes. She liked going to school everyday and loved her teachers and activities.
Very professional and well trained staff. Facility is clean, well organized, always attend to my kids on whatever they need. would highly recommend this daycare facility.
Have known ABC for almost 20 years. I grew up around the area and now my kids go to ABC. The teachers are great! They really care about the children and their growth. They give customized suggestions to parents as they watch and see the child’s growth, which I am thankful for since I am a working mom.
