INCLUSION MEANS FOR EVERYONE!
For children and adults: all of our programs can be adapted or modified for the special needs of our participants; including (but not exclusive to) physical, intellectual, social or emotional. Know 2 Grow's Educators have degrees and certifications in Special Education and Recreational Therapy, so we can also create something new to fit any curriculum or theme and make it accessible!

Fairy tale characters and comic book superheroes will take us to Oz, the World of Harry Potter, Wonderland and more!
