Longwood-Led Curriculum Programs
Longwood Gardens' School & Youth Programs nurture student curiosity while focusing on learning. Our hands-on, curriculum-based programs are designed to expand learning beyond the classroom walls!
Prepare for your visit with our orientation video:
Rooted firmly in National Education Standards and/or the Common Core State Standards, our programs use our Gardens to bring classroom lessons to life for 15,000 students and their teachers every year. Read testimonials from both students and teachers!
Tailored to grade bands K–2, 3–5, and 6-8, programs are offered Tuesdays–Fridays at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm, and are approximately 90 minutes in length. Groups must have a minimum of 15 students for an educator-led program. We require 1-2 chaperones for every 15 students.
Programs cover all core subjects and are taught by our educators. Our staff is on hand to help you plan your visit or to answer any questions you may have about these learning opportunities.
