Garden Gate Child Development Center aims to “fully support the development of each child and to ensure their successes as both students and citizens of our community”, according to their mission statement on their website. They take an innovative approach to early education by using the arts as a means of creative communication and problem solving. This year marks they celebrate their 25th year of serving the community. 

On Saturday, June 2nd from 4pm to 6pm, the Francine Kelly Gallery at Featherstone will host an opening celebration for the exhibit “The 100 Languages of Children: Celebrating Creativity and Community”.
