Outdoor Preschool (Ages 3-5)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Play is the work of the preschool age child. At Nature Connect we foster a child’s sense of wonder and play through games, songs and stories. Each day has a theme that explores the natural world through movement, play and curiosity. Crafts using materials found in the woods help to develop fine motor skills and an appreciation for our natural resources. Children are also introduced to plant, animal, and bird identification through stories and direct observation. We also help preschoolers explore their physical and problem-solving abilities while navigating the woods around them.
