Weekly Classes (With Adult)

Weekly child/adult classes are fun and educational for kids and parents! Each class is organized around a seasonally relevant concept, occurrence, or a natural element. Activities include some combination of hands-on exploration, games, songs and crafts. We end each class with a snack and story related to the day's theme. Classes are held at various local parks in the community. Exceptions to age groupings may be granted for siblings to attend together.  Backpack babies are welcome to accompany their older siblings.
