BADM programs (included in admission) engage children in research-backed fun through active programs, imaginative art projects, and design challenges.
Each program is influenced research-backed learning goals. As children engage in different activities, parents are supported to identify these moments of creative development. BADM learning goals were created by early learning experts in BADM’s in-house research department.
All programs are subject to change due to weather or staffing. Check the on-site programs calendar for the most up-to-date schedule!
