Adult & Child Together Classes for Children 30 months to 4 years

A parent or caregiver participating in adult & child together classes will learn ways to support competence in their child, ways to nurture innate wonder and curiosity, and ways to help their child(ren) learn to be a part of a group of learners. Encouraging helping and caring comes naturally when teaching with animals.

Year-round and seasonal opportunities for playing in and exploring nature are endless at The Children’s Farm. Activities include feeding and caring for animals; hiking in our surrounding woods and fields; planting(spring/summer)/harvesting (summer/fall) vegetables from the garden; creating a winter bonfire (winter); exploring ice-covered ponds (winter); planting seeds(spring/summer); gathering eggs; and learning how to ride the pony(spring/summer/fall).

Adult & Child Together Details

  • Classes meet once per week (rain or shine) and are two hours in length. Summer adult/child classes are 2.5 hours.
  • All adult/child together classes are non-separating classes. The parent/caregiver attends with their 3 or 4 year old child(ren). 
  • Children must be 30 months-4 years old at the start of class.
  • We request the same adult attend each week with the child.
  • No more than one adult per child but one adult can be with more than one child.
  • Classes are held outside in all types of weather, so please dress accordingly. Our indoor classroom and barn are used sparingly.
  • Limit one session per family per season.
