About the Sliding Scale

As a non-profit, it is a critical part of The Family Garden’s mission that we offer services to all our community members – not just those who are able to pay full price. We offer a standing discount on a sliding scale to local families based on your annual household income. All you have to do is check the appropriate box on your initial Attendee Form and Liability Waiver when you come in for your first class and we’ll set a standing discount of up to 50% for all our classes and programs for your account!

Childcare

At The Family Garden we celebrate you and your little ones, and we recognize how important it is for you to take the time to learn, socialize and care for yourself.  That is where our childcare program comes in!

We offer child care in our beautifully equipped child care room during many classes and programs.  Not every class has child care available, so please double check the listing to verify availability. We recommend you come a little early to sign your child in and get them settled.  Child care is first come, first served so for some of the busier classes there is always a chance that our child care room will have reached capacity and we will not be able to accommodate your child. There will be a charge of $3/child for drop in child care or you may purchase a child care punch card – 5 punches for $18.75 – 10 punches for $35 or 20 punches for $60.  Please view our Child Care Policies page for more details.
