Forest Days: Little Rangers Fall
September 16 @ 12:15 pm - 2:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:15 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 16, 2021
Members must have a minimum FAMILY membership or higher level to register.
Forest Days at the Greenwich Botanical Center is an all weather, outdoor preschool enrichment program designed to encourage children ages 3 1/2 through 5 to grow socially, emotionally and physically through interest-led play and natural exploration. The program will be offered Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12:15 – 2:45 p.m. You may register your child for one or both days. Our afternoon schedule flows organically from what nature presents each day. We are an all weather program and we will be meeting outdoors, rain or shine, in all safe weather. Space is limited.
Our belief is that spending unstructured time in the forest stimulates each child’s innate curiosity. Outdoor nature play develops observation skills, problem solving, logic and reasoning skills and encourages taking risks. Activities include creating secret habitats, making forest stew, observing critters in their natural environments, going on nature walks, singing, art and free play.
