Just Planted - Rushton Farm Seedlings
We are pleased to announce a pilot project for the tiniest members of the Willistown Conservation Trust community: our Seedlings! We invite children aged two-and-a-half through five years old, with a favorite caregiver, to join us for five mornings of exploration at the Rushton Conservation Center with the Rushton Farm Seedlings. Here are some pictures from our first fun-filled session:
Our curriculum is built on the philosophy that outdoor exploration in just about any weather is a critical component of early childhood development, and one that is often hard to fit into today’s busy lifestyles. Each week, we will read a story, sing a song, and then head outside to find the wonders of favorite childhood books mirrored in the splendors of the natural world.
Here are the sessions we have planned through the end of April.
