Story Telling

Fezzy There Magical Fox© & Friends

Story telling is such a huge part of how we learn about the world in which we live and how to navigate it successfully. That is why, here at the Magic Garden, we use Story Time to launch learning everyday. Those who join us for Play School are guided and supported by a wonderful team of care-givers and a magical cast of creatures, popping out of the pages of action packed, consciously curated books.

Faye wrote Fezzy The Magical Fox© and all her other activity books as a practical resource & invitation to play...

Play School

We invite wonder into the everyday here at the Magic Garden Play School. Tasks big and small take on a whole new meaning when we are searching for magic. We sing our song to start the day, then come some invitations of play, chosen from the many color curriculum activities. Art in the Garden, Story Yoga, Baby Zen Sound Bath's, gardening and much more take place every week. Read on to learn more...
