virtual preschool programs

Neighborhood Nature: Recommended for grades preK-3rd

This experience is designed to get curious minds wondering about what is living outside their homes or school yards. We will use our sense of sight and hearing to discover examples of what living things need to survive as we explore the habitats along the Nature Center’s trails. I wonder… do the Nature Center grounds have anything in common with your neighborhood? Join the program to learn simple investigation techniques we can use to find the answer!

$130 per group.

Ecosystem Impact:
Recommended for grade 4 and up

This program focuses on the connections between habitats and the impact our communities have on them as we explore the larger ecosystem of the Shaker Parklands. Video and audio clips focus on Doan Brook and the surrounding forests and neighborhoods. We will also hear stories from the Nature Center’s Natural Resources team describing how they are working to protect our natural spaces through their work on our 20-acres of habitat.

$130 per group.

The live, virtual component is 30-45 minutes in length and focuses on interacting with the Nature Center educators - bring your questions! Extension activities provide an additional 30+ minutes of learning through recorded videos and off-screen activities designed for the grade level of your learners.
