TODDLER AND SIBLING FOREST PROGRAM
(Toddlers 22-36 months and Siblings 0-5 years)

 

Fridays 12pm to 2pm
Location: Various Outdoor Locations including, but not limited to the Ojai Meadow Preserve, River Preserve, Wheeler Gorge campground, Emma Wood state beach, and Libbey Park creek area
A collaboration with Ventura Wild

Pre-Registration required

This is a child centered nature exploration and playgroup for tots with and without siblings.  This group is multi-aged and geared for those families with more than one child, or families who wish to experience a diverse group of very young children.  Children and adults will be introduced to our local wilderness through exploration, guided activities and stories.  Developmentally appropriate skills are all integrated into natural learning experiences based on nature discoveries and the children’s interests.  

The class includes lots of walking and exploration, a snack and story time, during which parents and caregivers will have the opportunity for an adult conversation exploring themes and ideas of parenting in nature, and nature games and activities for both tots and grownups to share.

Classes will meet at different outdoor locations in the Ojai area.  Examples of places we might go are the Ventura River Preserve, the Ojai Meadow Preserve, Wheeler Gorge and Libbey Park by the bike path.  A simple snack of “o” cereal will be provided.  We suggest caregivers bring additional snacks and plenty of water for their children as many will work up an appetite!
