We welcome your input!

Over the past 3 years, we have hosted weekly 1.25-hr. "Nature Adventures for Tots" classes each spring and fall for children ages 2-5 with an adult, which have been a lot of fun for everyone.  Several years ago, we hosted weekly 1.5 hour "Jr. Nature Club" classes each spring and fall for children ages 4-5 who attended without a parent, which was also well-received.  And for many years, we have hosted 8 different weeks of "Jr. Nature Explorers" camps for ages 4-5 each summer, each with 3-hr. camp days!

We are currently exploring the options for expanding our preschool-age nature classes in September 2017, to include additional weekday mornings and longer class times throughout the school year.   With our beautiful Hawthorne Hills classroom leading right out into the Children's Garden, P-Patch, and other nearby park areas, there are such great possibilities for healthy and fun learning and growing!

If you have, or will soon have children ages 3-5 and would be interested in an ongoing preschool nature class experience for your child, we would be grateful for you to share your input and ideas in this survey!

This survey will be open until April 15th, 2017. Thanks in advance for your participation!
