The Pre-K group will run from 9:30am - 12:00pm, with the first half hour dedicated to playing near the drop off site to allow parents ample time to get to the location.
The cost of the program is as follows: $25 per hike OR $100 for the entire session (2/15, 2/22, 3/1, 3/8, 3/22,3/29) - that’s quite a bargain! No hikes the week of March 14-March 19 as it is spring break and many families go out of town. For parents who would like to volunteer for a hike, there will be a discount for the child and no cost for parent. Please let us know if your child will be participating each Tuesday by the Monday before. If you’d like to sign up for the whole session, please indicate that as well. SPACE IS LIMITED!
Each session will include the following elements: - free play / playground time - Nature Walk and Explore - this may include gathering of nature materials for a craft either done at the group or to take home, stop off at key locations for the kids to look a bit more closely at their surroundings (making mud soup or pies, watching the ducks, listening to nature sounds, etc), and a snack break - Nature craft and story Kids know what they like! We will plan to go on a particular route, but sometimes we may not get as far as planned - and this is OK! There are so many opportunities for play along the way that adults often miss - kids see them all.
Please plan for your child to bring the following: - sturdy shoes (waterproof is even better) - a change of clothes (accidents happen) - a snack - a backpack Please check the forecast and have your child dress accordingly. We will be rotating between three locations, with 2 trips to each location for ample exploration time. The locations will be Upper Goldwater Lake (2/15), Lynx Lake South Shore, and Willow Lake near the boat ramp.
