Ages 2-5 years & Adult. Is your family ready to embrace the outdoors this winter and play outside in this newly-designed class full of surprises? Andrea, teacher of Little Tykes Sports City, will lead families in a COVID-safe fashion with a different focus and theme each week. Trek through the woods (and hopefully some snow!) completing scavenger hunts, creating winter-based art or learning new sports and games all while being in the company of other children and parents during this socially-isolated time. Meet in the grass at the entrance to the Mitchell Scarlett Woods Nature Area at the end of the bus loop. All adults and children are expected to wear masks. If weather conditions are unsafe, make-up class(es) will be offered on March 14th and/or 21st. The First Steps Early Childhood PTO will help to provide winter outerwear for families in need who otherwise would not be able to participate. Instructor: Andrea Nance. 6 classes.
