Grab your keiki and join us for a fun afternoon at the farm!
Our Keiki in Nature workshops are led by occupational therapist, Tyler Jeklinski and the farm staff at local farms on island. We promise to bring you and your child an immersive, sensory experience exploring nature and learning the importance of the week's topic, as well as ideas for parents to incorporate at home for development and overall health of the entire family. We will be outside for about an hour and a half at most, so please dress accordingly and bring a drink to keep yourself hydrated! Be sure to check out our upcoming workshops -we hold 10 total spots for children for each workshop to have a more intimate experience.
