Nature Preschool Classes 

Children are never too young to start exploring and learning from nature, especially with the support of a caring adult to guide them. At Asbury Woods, parent, grandparents or other care providers attend classes with their child. Asbury Woods offers exciting and fun preschool classes throughout the year. Each class will focus on a different seasonal topic and children will learn through stories, crafts, games, hands on activities, and more. Every class will also include a visit with a live animal that lives at Asbury Woods. As weather permits, classes will include outdoor activities and nature play

Tots in Nature — classes are for 2–3 year olds. The Tots class is perfect for parents who are looking to introduce their children who are not old enough yet for a formal preschool program to a structured, but fun learning environment. Tots classes meet once a week during a 3 & 6 week session of classes. Each class is 60 minutes long.

Nature Discovery — classes are for 4–5 year olds. The Nature Discovery classes are an opportunity for children who attend preschool part of the week or are not yet in preschool to explore nature in the company of a grown-up.
