Enrichment programs continue all year long at the Pratt Nature Center. Watching the leaves turn colors and harvesting vegetables in the autumn, snowshoeing in the winter, planting, growing and catching frogs in the spring and summer….we do it all and we do it outside! Make sure you are wearing seasonal clothes and shoes that can get wet and dirty. We NEVER go around a good mud puddle! Registration for all of our Weekly Enrichment Programs is by month and you can join anytime.
Call 860-355-3137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Pre K and Kindergarten
10:00 – 1:00
Ages 3 – 5
Spend the mornings outside, exploring our 205 acre property. We believe that children, from a very young age, should have a place to play, learn, and find peace in the outdoors. Nature is our greatest teacher, from which we can learn how to ask questions, how things fit together, and what value each living thing has. We walk through the mud puddles, over or under the logs, and around the spider webs! River hikes, gardening, animal care, field games, snowshoeing, sledding, art, songs and stories- all at our own pace. Bring a lunch, and be prepared to be outside in all kinds of weather!
Monthly sign up happens year round, space is limited.
No June, July or August.
Kindergarten through 6th grade, during the school year. (No June, July or August)
Is there a better way for kids to decompress after a school day than playing outside? We don’t think so! Spend the afternoon outside with supervised but self directed play and investigation of all the possibilities our 205 acres have to offer. Adventure up the mountain, explore the river, run through the meadow, care for the animals or just rest and observe the natural world – it’s up to you!
