The Discovery Zone feels it is critical for children to start off at an early age with a positive, fun experience interacting in a natural setting.
We're currently offering Discovering Spring, Summer Discoveries, and Discovering Autumn, three seasonal Mommy & Me Programs for 4, 5 and 6 year olds with their parent or caregiver. Each week we read a story related to that days topic, explore the Discovery Zone trails through the eyes of our preschoolers, and create a craft together. Interacting in a natural setting offers young children unsurpassed opportunities for mental, physical and emotional growth. The shared experience of an adult over the course of the program further enhances this impact.
“The stories and activities were appropriate and engaging, the instructor sensitive to the needs of her audience, yet blessed with a sense of humor, and the setting both lovely and geared to the legs of small children.” -Nancy, participant with her granddaughter in Discovering Autumn
Studies are linking the growing disconnect of children interacting with nature to increased levels of attention deficit, obesity and depression, in addition to a sharp decline of scientists and engineers. Our programs will help children sharpen their observation skills, increase their awareness and feed their imagination.
Humans have interacted with nature since the earliest days, but it has disappeared for many of our children. Let the Discovery Zone introduce nature to your children so that it's many benefits will last a lifetime.
