Puddle Jumpers
A Nature Program for Preschoolers at Millbrook Marsh Nature Center
Fall 2017 - Winter 2018 - Spring 2018

The Puddle Jumpers program for preschoolers mixes outdoor exploration with fundamental learning through hands-on experiences at Millbrook Marsh Nature Center! 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. Each session is different, so sign up for all three!

Payments for subsequent months will be automatically processed to a credit card on the first business day of each month for the remainder of the session. The agency may cancel registrations if payments are not able to be processed. Enrollment in a session payment plan is a commitment to make those subsequent payments. Parents will be asked to sign a payment plan agreement. Refund policies above apply.
