Introducing Little Towhees: A Nature Based Educational Program for Preschool Aged Learners
These programs focus on guiding young learners in self-awareness and self regulation, growing confidence and independence, and fostering an appreciation for the interconnection of the world around them. These programs are led by James Krolikowski, the preschool educator who led our Summer Daycamp programs last year. She also teaches at the Tacoma Nature Center! Little Towhees classes are suitable for ages 4 to 6.
