Preschool Adventures

Our Preschool Adventure series based on a nationally recognized curriculum in life and physical sciences. Each adventure is different and has a theme chosen to spark a preschooler’s imagination. Included is a brief nature hike and a hands-on activity or craft. Class size is limited.

This season’s overarching theme is Growing Up Wild About Autrey Mill! Join us as we bring the past alive through sensory explorations.
