Nature Play After School - Winter and Spring 2019
Ages: 5 - 8
Dates: Wednesdays, January 2nd - February 6th, February 27th-April 10th
Time: 3-4:30 PM
Together we will explore the nearby field and woods, watch the season unfold, search for signs of animal life, play active games, and slide on snow and ice while creating pretend worlds, experimenting, and connecting with nature. This program will use sit-spots, free play, and story sharing to develop sensory awareness, creativity, independence, self-confidence, and communication skills. Children should bring a water bottle and dress in layers for the weather (fleece or wool is best!), wearing snow pants, boots, coat, warm hat, mittens, etc. as we will be outside the entire time. Led by experienced nature educator, Meg Taylor and assistant teacher, Hazel Goleman. All staff are First Aid/CPR certified. Limited to 12 children.
