Westbrook Nature School’s Spring Parent-Child Classes will begin on March 16 and 17. The parent-toddler groups are for parents and caregivers with children from birth to three years of age. The groups meet once a week for two hours, providing socialization and acclimating children to the school in preparation for preschool and kindergarten experiences. It also gives parents an opportunity to meet other parents in the area and discuss parenting issues.
Children engage in free play in either outdoor or indoor spaces while parents and caregivers have the option to make a seasonal craft. The class includes a teacher-led circle time with movement, songs and finger plays as well as organic snacks and a nature walk.
Westbrook Nature School provides an early childhood, nature-based curriculum set on six acres featuring trails, streams, meadows, an organic garden and natural playscapes. The school also offers parent-child classes, mixed-age kindergarten, playdays and seasonal events, in addition to adult workshops on parenting, nutrition, arts/crafts and nature. On May 1 from 11am to 1pm, Westbrook will host its annual May Fair & Spring Open House.
