The "Little Years" series is designed for parent-and-child experiences at three St Louis area sites: Missouri Botanical Garden, Butterfly House and Shaw Nature Reserve. This series places the focus on your child, you, and the wonders of nature while preparing your child for preschool and kindergarten. Your child will learn skills such as taking turns, listening to the teacher and their friends, sharing, and making choices. Each class in all series incudes hands-on activities, songs, stories, snacks, and a short walk.

Little Nature Explorers
For ages 3 to 5. Come prepared for a short walk
Early childhood peer interaction is key to early development. Each week has a different nature-based theme, hands-on activities, story time, snack provided, and outdoor exploration (weather permitting). Take one class or take them all. Register by September 2, 2019, for three or more Little Nature Explorer classes, and your child will receive a t-shirt! Price per child, per class. One adult per child.

PLEASE NOTE: Little Sprouts, Little Nature Explorers, Little Bugs, and Garden Buds are specifically designed as an adult/child program. Having younger children present can distract from the one-on-one experience for you and for others. Please no infants or toddlers.
