Fall 2019 Kids and creatures Registration open!

Kids and Creatures in Spring is a program where we get together once a week for 6 weeks. Each day we get together we will get to meet 3 amazing animals! Armadillos, a kangaroo, and a hedgehog are just a few to start! Kids and their parent/grandparent/guardian will learn about each animal, get to ask questions, and even touch some of the animals. We'll get on our feet for some movement activities and games designed for various ages and abilities, followed by group story time. The morning includes sensory stations and cool crafts based on the animals from presentations that week.

This is a wonderful experience for children to learn about and expand their exposure to the natural world. It is designed as a child and parent/caregiver class. We encourage you to share this time with your child and find alternative arrangements for siblings under 2.5 years. In general, the time dedicated to viewing and quietly listening to information about the animals is beyond what can be expected of those younger than 2.5 years. Thank you in advance for planning ahead and helping keep our classroom environment safe and enjoyable for all participants & for our animals!
