Little Birds Weekend Classes

For children ages birth through 3 years and their caregivers

Sign up for just one monthly session or the whole series. Classes meet on alternating weekend days. This program includes primarily outdoor experiences and is a perfect introduction to our approach to learning in The Nature Preschool.
