For ages 2-4. Explore the world of invertebrates with your toddler while they develop language, communication, cognitive, and knowledge skills. Each session includes story time, craft, snack, and an adventure in our native butterfly garden. Price per child, per class. One adult per child.


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 includes hands-on activities, songs, stories, snacks, and a short walk.
