Early Childhood Programs
Connecting young children to local food systems and the environment through inquiry-based learning
MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center provides young children a unique place to increase their knowledge of the plants, animals, and natural habitats which exist in our community. Our programs, including Farm Sprouts, Children's Garden Story Hour, and Preschool Field Trips, focus on developing scientific thinking and understanding through discovery, experimentation, sensory experiences, and play! As active and curious learners, preschoolers are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas, ask questions, and explore ways to gain new information related to topics of interest.
