PEEP (Preschool Environmental Education Program)

PEEP Winter Session 2 runs February 21 – March 31

Pre-registration begins on Monday, January 9 for children currently enrolled in PEEP.

Pre-registration begins on Monday, January 23 for children not enrolled in PEEP.

A child’s reaction to animals is strongly influenced by adults around them.  A pleasant experience with an animal helps promote a positive response!  Our PEEP classes focus on positive encounters with wildlife, filled with awe-inspiring information to help dispel myths and lessen unfounded fears.

Preschoolers meet once a week for six weeks and will discover a different nature-related topic as we share stories, encounter wildlife and explore the outdoors!  Class sizes are limited to 10 children.  Classes last 1.5 hours of mostly outdoor activity, so always dress your child for the weather (rain/winter coats, boots, hats, gloves, etc.)  PEEP is geared specifically for children ages 3 – 5 years old, who are potty-trained (no pull-ups) and not attending Kindergarten (or being homeschooled for Kindergarten).

Classes are offered Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00am and Thursday afternoons from 1:00 – 2:30pm.

Cost for PEEP Winter Session 2:

$55 for BNC Members per child

$75 for Nonmembers per child
