Gardening on Mondays

CIn the heart of the Secret Garden, children discover what gardens are used for, how to maintain them, and what are the environmental and friendly ways to do it. Afterwards, they are invited to have a hads-on experience by sowing seeds in the garden to leave a beautiful trace of their time at the castle.
Finally the children will have a hand-on experience as they will sow flower seeds and repot their own plant to take home.

Tale and Taste on Tuesdays

Come to discover the tale “Marion et la vie qui bat”, from Roxanne Turcotte. This tale, inspired from the château’s grand mother, explains to the children the differencies between Court and Poultry-yard and delights their ears with animals coming to life and girls living funny stories…
At the end of the story, a snack will be offered to the children.Contenu de la cellule droite du paragraphe
