Little Kits Classes

Discover the joys of nature with your little ones!

Named for baby beavers, Little Kits pre-K classes are designed for children ages 2 to 5. Classes are an hour long and are offered one day a week for six weeks at a time. Classes feature stories, exploration, and lots of nature play! Our goal is to help your child make new friends, develop curiosity about nature, and become comfortable with the world around them. We intentionally design all classes for participation by both the child and their parent or guardian.

You can register to take classes in the full series of six or individually.
