March 17 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Sunday and Thursday, happening 12 times
Tree Tots is a nature-based-play class where children are encouraged to use their senses to explore their natural environment and learn together through play. Tree Tots builds on the nature-focused development children and caregivers experience with Nature Babies, but is also excellent for families new to the Nurtured in Nature Series.
Caregivers are a vital part of the Tree Tots experience, fostering their child’s curiosity and helping them explore the great outdoors. Classes are loosely structured with teachers functioning as guides; asking questions to encourage wonder and allowing our Tree Tots to make choices throughout our journey.
Classes will begin with “circle time,” where we will get to know one another with a welcome song and brief discussion. We’ll continue with story time, focusing on the week’s theme, before setting out to play and learn as we go. Tree Tots is connected to and builds the foundation for Forest Friends, the next step in nature-education at the KPNC.
Each season, Tree Tots meets every Thursday (and Sundays in spring and fall) for six weeks. Children will learn about a different topic each week of the 6-week session.
Tree Tots is $60 per student for all 6 classes ($48 for members). A discount of 10% is available for siblings living in the same household.
