Where Every Family Matters

Tots! at Cheekwood

Tots! at Cheekwood Starts Up On March 9

Fun and crafty programming for Littles returns this spring!

What little kid doesn’t love crafts? Bring your Littles to Tots! at Cheekwood, the Estate and Garden’s drop-in crafting  program for young children that returns next month in the Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden. Beginning March 9, tots and a guardian can enjoy hands-on activities and story times Tuesday through Saturday.

Join a member of the garden staff for a crowd favorite, Turtle Talks, as they feed the turtles and answer questions about the Children’s Garden’s shelled residents. Each week’s theme is inspired by current exhibitions or seasonal festivals, encouraging exploration of art and the natural world. The TOTS! program is weather permitting and the program is free with the price of admission.
