Primary School Educational Programs

We wish to"plant" the seed of love for nature in children’s hearts. Kids need to spend time in nature and discover its wonders through exploration and play. This is our goal. 

As they walk in the Attica’s Botanical Park, children move freely and learn through our educational programs, which are adapted to their age and each group’s dynamics.

1

A Walk In The Park: An Experiential Approach

Young gardeners observe and take care of the Park.
What is the ecosystem? Why are plants vital to our planet, to animals and humans? What are the special features and properties of the Park’s plants? How do plants grow? How is photosynthesis carried out? Why are wetlands important? How do we plant in pots?
In a specially designed natural environment, children play and learn, observe and discover, touch and create, act as a team and collaborate. They gather useful information for making their own plant pot, which they will later take home. .
Program runs all year round
Program duration: up to 2 hours Book here

Nature And Art

When nature inspires creation…
The Botanical Park transforms into an art workshop, where we discuss art, we study artists who work with the natural environment, we play and create. A mix of craft materials and materials collected from nature inspires children to compose their own artwork and decorate their rooms at home. .
Program runs all year round
Program duration: up to 2 hours Book here

Environment And Rights

We learn, respect and love the environment.
Through interactive storytelling and experiential games, children realize that nature is our "home", which needs protection and care. They learn about animal and plant rights, the rules and necessity of recycling and how to adopt a "zero waste living" lifestyle. They understand their share of responsibility for the survival of flora and fauna as well as the importance of teamwork for a healthy environment and a quality of life.
Program runs every Tuesday and Friday, year-round
