Nature Tykes Series

Nature Tykes is for kids ages 2.5 to 5 years



Jump-start or continue your child’s journey into nature play at the Museum of Life and Science! Through these pre-registered classes, children and their caregivers will explore the natural world through sensory play, games, nature walks, music, and other outdoor activities facilitated by our expert educators. We’ll share tips for exploring different Museum exhibits with your child and give you resources for supporting nature play through different stages of your child’s development. Best of all, spending time outdoors (with other adults!) is good for you, too! 

While you unplug and spend time present in nature with your child, one of our program facilitators will photograph special moments together with your little one and share them through our digital classroom — an optional space for families to engage outside of our class time together. The digital classroom is also a space where we will share a curated selection of resources for nature-based learning that you can use throughout your child’s developmental journey.
