This new program for young children, 3 years and under, and a caregiver, will meet at the Stryker Nature Preserve on Angling Road (adjacent to Nature’s Way Preschool) to explore, nurture artistry, climb, get messy, observe, build, sing, and tell stories while fostering an early love of nature. Led by an experienced Nature’s Way teacher with multiple early childhood degrees, each session will have a small group size of 10 families. These loosely-structured outdoor sessions will allow for a mix of guided and open-ended experiences. All relevant health and safety guidelines for outdoor activities will be observed. Participants will be supported to engage in ways that feel safest for their family.
We recognize there is significant variability in what families in our community are able to afford. This reality is only growing due to the impacts of COVID-19. Financial assistance is available and can be applied for by answering a few simple questions during the registration process.
Contact Nature’s Way Sprouts Coordinator, Lindsey Homan, at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions on the program.
