(Preschool Environmental Education Program)

Thomas Berry said “Teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives.”

Fall Session 2 will run November 1 ­– December 17

Preschoolers will meet once a week for six weeks and discover a different nature-related topic each week filled with discoveries as we share stories, encounter wildlife and explore the outdoors!  Classes are limited to 10 children with 1.5 hours of mostly outdoor activity – always dress for the weather (rain coat, boots, gloves, etc).  PEEP is geared for children that are 3 – 5 years old, who are potty-trained (no pull-ups) and not attending Kindergarten or being homeschooled for Kindergarten in the fall.

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

Cost for PEEP Fall Session 2:

$55 for BNC Members/child

$75 for nonmembers/child
