Preschool Farm Explorers
September 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until September 29, 2022
This 4-week series starts on Thursday, September 8. If you are interested in joining the program part way through the series please email ChestnutHillFarm@thetrustees.org
September is the time of year when fall is starting to peek around the corner, while summer still seems to be holding on. Some mornings could be cold, while some could be hot! We will search for these subtle seasonal changes. Do we spot some leaves changing? Where did the sunflower petals go? What wildlife is on the move?
Your little farm explorers will become fully immersed in what life is like here at Chestnut Hill Farm. Each morning will be a new learning experience. We will begin by learning about a seasonal topic based on what is happening in nature or the yearly cycle on the farm. We will take a walk on the farm, relating what we’ve learned to everything we are seeing! We may go on a nature scavenger hunt, look for wildlife, search for animal signs, or visit the farm animals. We will also make something together for your little one to treasure at home. This could be a related craft, something for the wildlife in your yard, planted seeds, or something yummy in a jar!
This program begins on Thursday, September 8th. Your admission fee covers all four weeks in the series. There are no refunds for missed dates.
The dates of this series are as follows:
This is a monthly sign-up. Each month will have different themes, and you are welcome to attend as many months as you would like!
We have an indoor space to use for art and other activities, but we will also be spending time outdoors so make sure to come with layers!
