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.
For ages 3 to 5. Early childhood peer interaction is key to early development. Each month has a different nature-based theme, hands-on activities, story time, and outdoor exploration including a short walk (weather permitting). Take one class or take them all. Register by September 1, 2023, for three or more Little Nature Explorer classes, and your child will receive a t-shirt! All materials provided. Price per child, per class. One adult per child.
