Winter Nature Class For Little Kids


Share post:

MyVeronaNJ-Winter-KidsThe Essex County Environmental Center is holding a winter nature program for the 5 and under set for four weeks beginning this Thursday.

“Little Explorers Winter Nature Program” is designed for children and their parents or caregivers. It uses stories, walks and crafts to develop an awareness and appreciation of science and nature. A different nature or science topic is covered in each session, and you don’t have to attend them all. But space in the program is limited, and the Center requires advance registration and payment. The cost is $5 per child per session, but the Center says there may be some additional fees for materials.

There is one class at 10 a.m. for children ages 2 to 3½. Children age 3½ to 5 have their choice of two classes, at 1 p.m. or 3 p.m.  The Center is located in Roseland and you can call 973-228-8776 for more information. [mappress]
