Public Programs for Ages 1-5

Tiny Tot Walks

Getting outside with your toddler can be a fun way to spend a morning!  Join us as we take a guided walk along our trails to see what each month during the seasons brings us. Each walk will last about 1 hour and will take a very leisurely pace to accommodate the tot's little legs. Ideal for children ages 1-3, this program is designed for adults to stay with their children. The group will meet on the front porch of the Leslie House.

Nature Tales

Join us each month for this naturally unique story time for 1-5 year-olds. We accompany the story with a selection of hands-on, nature-themed activities that will include live animal visits and an outdoor activity.

Tykes Preschool Program

A special program for 4-5 year-olds that lasts a whole month, Tykes is two hours of educational fun every week - and adults are free to leave (though welcomed to stay)! This program features a variety of activities including animal presentations, hikes in Black Pond Woods, crafts, experiments, and a snack. As our Tykes program relies on building camaraderie as a group, space is limited and preregistration is required. If minimum registration is not reached by the Friday prior to the initial session, the program may be canceled.
