Toddler Tuesdays

Hands-on learning and discovery for our youngest explorers

The 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 the way 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.

Geared for: Toddlers Ages 1-4 and an adult. Tuesdays from 10 to 11:15 a.m. Parent/guardian must attend!

Cost:

  • $2 per child per class for members
  • $5 per child per class for non-members. 

Schedule: Toddler Tuesday will run every Tuesday during the regular school semester between September and mid-May, taking a break during June, July, and August.
