Preschool Explorers

March 24, 2020: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily discontinued all programs until May 15. Registration for summer programs has also been temporarily closed. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available. 

There’s something special about seeing the magic and freedom the outdoor world has through the eyes of young children. Join us and other families to explore the forests, creeks, and fields in our Preschool Explorers program!

Each day has a different theme, but most Preschool Explorers include themed hands-on activities, storytelling, and nature-based imaginative time. We’ll be experiencing nature with all of our senses, including our sense of fun!

Preschool Explorers run most spring and summer Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 am at West Point on the Eno Park. Join us for a guided morning of nature-based exploration designed for 3-5 year olds and their adult.
