Lil Nature Kids

Lil Nature Kids (age 3-6) - DROP OFF PROGRAM! 

Lil’ Nature Kids is a drop-off style program that uses experienced, enthusiastic teachers to combine ecological concepts with developmentally appropriate skills and kindergarten readiness. Our preschool naturalists take small groups of children into a park for two hours to learn through stories, songs, art, exploration, and imaginary play. The primary goal is to give children positive outdoor experiences, rain or shine, with teachers who direct the learning based on the children’s interests. All classes are mixed age. Ratio of students to teachers is 4:1 or better. Fall schedule TBA 

Praise for Lil' Nature Kids!

"My daughter loved the first day. She's not typically very cold tolerant, but she went out on a cold, rainy 41 degree day and had a blast. That's a ringing endorsement!"
Parent - Winter 2016

"My kiddos have been absolutely LOVING this program.  I have signed them up even though we typically have another obligation on Wednesdays, and am excited to get to go with them to 'Nature School'!"
