Toddler Tuesdays

Our Toddler Tuesday program is designed to connect our youngest visitors to nature through stories, art, science, math, music, and movement while interacting with their adult caregiver and other children. Each weekly class has a seasonal theme and we will spend as much time outdoors as the weather and interest allows. Activities related to each theme encourage children to discover and explore the world around them at their own pace and in their own way- we understand that toddlers have minds of their own and that the way that they learn best is through hands-on exploration. Children and their caregivers have time to socialize, practice simple pre-literacy and pre-math skills, and more while exploring, discovering, playing, and experiencing nature. We encourage children and adults to dress for the weather and to plan to get a bit dirty while we explore using all of our senses.

Ages 1-4 and an adult. Tuesdays from 10-11:15. Parent/guardian must attend! $2/child/class for members & $5/child/class for non-members.
