October saw the launch of another Tri-County initiative, the Lowcountry Play Collaborative. In partnering with Magnolia Gardens, Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester First Steps put into practice collective experience and expertise about how children learn and become school-ready. One benefit of this partnership is that Tri-County First Steps’ families often receive free or discounted admission to Magnolia Gardens. Click here to read the announcement and discover more about this exciting new enterprise. The Lowcountry Play Collaborative is an on-going project that continues to be well-received by Lowcountry families and visitors alike. The pictures below show activities from our first event, “A Fairy Garden Challenge.” We hope you visit Magnolia Gardens to see what we will be up to next!
