Nature School: Fall Exploration

Sprouting seeds, wiggly worms, digging dirt… Nature School provides young children with unique and meaningful opportunities to explore the world around them.

Each week children will engage in hands-on activities inside the classroom and throughout the Conservatory. They will nurture their curiosity, investigation skills, and understanding of plants, insects, and the natural world. Science, language arts, math, art and music will be used to support learning in fun, developmentally appropriate ways. Snack included. Children must be potty trained.
