2015 PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS

Pea Pods For Preschoolers 
3-5 years + Adult

Kindle a sense of wonder in the natural world with your preschool child as you reawaken it in yourself! PeaPods for Preschoolers provides the opportunity for you and your special little one to be enchanted by the plant world. Each weekly theme helps spark your child's appreciation for nature's beauty through planting, art, sensory and science, discovery zones, action and music, story time, Green Play Yard adventures, greenhouse exploration and snack. Come play and learn about nature!

PeaPods for Preschoolers registration is by seasonal series of 10 weekly classes for 3-5 year olds with an adult. For late registrants, remaining class sessions are available for purchase at a prorated price by calling 612-301-1210.

In order to honor the abilities and interests of preschoolers, please only bring registered participants. The Arboretum has many areas of interest for children of all ages. Ask us for ideas for your older children.
