Now in its 25th year, this popular program offers three- and four-year-olds the opportunity to interact with other students and with nature in a hands-on and exciting way. Young Naturalists learn letters, numbers, colors, and shapes by exploring, experimenting, and discovering the world around them.


The purpose of this unique program is to provide an early childhood experience that meets the developmental needs of each child through interaction with the environment and engaging the child’s sense of wonder with the goal of developing a lifelong appreciation and relationship with the natural world.
