|Young Children can make Valentines for the Birds during Feb. 14 program|
This program is called Valentines for the Birds and is for ages three to five. In addition to making a bird treat to take home and hang in their back yards, participants will read stories, make a bird-related craft, sing songs, and enjoy play time in Natureplay’s outdoor classroom. Participants should bring appropriate outdoor attire.
Valentines for the Birds will take place at 9 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 14. The cost for one 90-minute session is $14 per child for Johnson County residents or $15 per child for nonresidents. To find these programs in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “outdoor fun.”
Natureplay Preschool is a discovery-based learning program for ages three through five. While the program offers half-day preschool with two-, three-, to five-days-a-week options, these new stand-alone programs are meant to supplement other learning opportunities and provide children extended opportunities for outdoor exploration. Natureplay Director Rosanna Munoz holds degrees in biology and early childhood education has been leading JCPRD early childhood programs since 2002. For questions about Natureplay Preschool or the fall outdoor fun programs, call Munoz at (913) 826-2958.
