Family Programs

Throughout the year Hagley offers a variety of programs for people of all ages. We believe that a passion for learning begins at a very young age so create programs for families that will engage and inspire throughout a lifetime. We put particular emphasis on offering learning experiences that families can have together to make the most of the precious time they have as a group.
