Move, create, and discover during our morning early-years programs for children and caregivers. Held behind the Nature Centre in our newly-designed outdoor nature play space, this nature-based program for 2-5 year-olds is designed to inspire a life-long love of nature and the outdoors. Explore the natural world together through nature walks, storytelling, imaginative and loose parts play, and hands-on discovery in the Arboretum Play Space. Flexible registration permits families to register for a number of sessions, so you can come for a single morning or all through the season.
