A Nature Program for Preschoolers at Millbrook Marsh Nature Center

The Puddle Jumpers program provides children with opportunities to develop a foundation of learning through encounters in the natural world. This twice a week, drop off program offers 3-hour sessions of nature learning for kids ages 3-5, including unstructured, imaginative exploration, and structured, hands on learning. Kids should bring a snack each day and dress for the weather. More parent information will be provided after program registration. Each session is different!

"It's been months since my son (age 3 at the time) had his last Puddle Jumpers session, and he still talks to me all the time about his time at "nature school". Of course he thought it was a fabulous time with fun teachers and new buddies, but he also gathered so many vivid memories of the herons and woodpeckers, deer and turtles, fish and turkey vultures that he and his schoolmates would see on their daily hikes.”   I. P, Mom, State College
