Have you heard about PP&R’s Nuts About Nature program?
Created in 2008, the program helps children ages 3-7 connect to nature through ecology, songs, stories, play & developmentally appropriate practice.
Each teacher at Nuts About Nature is a professional environmental educator who has experience working with very young children.
Children spend 2-3 hours exploring in small groups with teachers who introduce ecology, read stories, sing songs, make projects & engage in free play.
Classes are designed with a framework, but also remain flexible to accommodate the needs and interests of the group.
