Our programs incorporate seasonal themes to help develop a child’s ability to make simple associations with things found in nature, to participate successfully in cooperative play and learning, and to help a child develop motor skills though games and role playing.
The hour-long program is typically held on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Center, may incorporate live animals, nature artifacts, stories, puppets, imaginative play, nature games and crafts.
