Event description

Description

Wild Wee Ones is a nature-based program for children ages 2.5 - 5 and their parent or guardian to connect together with the outdoors. This program takes place entirely outdoors exploring the fields and forests of Shades' Mills.

We provide a nurturing and learning environment for you and your young explorers. Our program leaders will guide you both in nature based play and discovery. We expect our explorers to leave our program more enriched than when they started with us. In the powerful growing stages of early childhood, the sense of exploration is uninhibited and playing is the core method for learning.

Our classroom is the earth, the trees, the rivers and the fields. We lead by the explorer’s natural curiosity and expand on the interest. We meet outside and stay outside, rain or shine, hot or cold, becoming aware of what we need to wear for our experiences.

Each day is greeted with a welcome of each other and gratitude for the day. Through playing games and discovering together, explorers are challenged to go beyond the familiar. That through questioning the unfamiliar, explorers will learn to focus their attention, to ask why, to collaborate with peers, developing inquisitive confidence they will learn to answer themselves. It is through this journey together, in nature, that each explorer will challenge, investigate and answer developing fundamental skills and confidence, which will last a lifetime.

In addition, the day is filled with art, song, dance, reading, storytelling, and much more. The important things the explorers will learn will show up naturally.

This 6 week program is offered every Wednesday from 9:30 -11:30 starting November 15 and ending on December 20. A single registration fee of $70 covers a parent with one or two children between the ages of 2.5 to 5 years. GRCA park members only pay $50 for the 6 week program. (The non-member price includes park entrance fees on program days).
