A preschoolers mind is like a sponge! Get ready for kindergarten the natural way! Hands-on lessons in the fields & forests will build skills in literacy, the five senses, coordination, & social development. Nurture your child's sense of wonder!
WHERE TO MEET: Meet near the turn-around/cul-de-sac on the Southeast side of the park. From Dosch Rd take SW Mitchell west and park in the turn-around. (A porta-potty will be placed at the site for the duration of the class.)
CLASS NOTES: Small groups of preschoolers explore nature with highly-trained, preschool naturalists and learn about Pacific NW ecology through crafts, songs, games and play. Children are outdoors rain or shine - we make nature fun in any type of weather! Student to teacher ratio is 4:1 or better. This is a drop-off program. If class is full, join a waitlist. If we have available staff, we will open up additional spaces. NATURE TOPICS FOR THIS SESSION: 1) Slugs 2) Hail & Snow 3) Owls 4) Evergreens & Cones.
