Forest Days Spring Registration:

December 17, 2019 - January 13, 2020

$700 – $1600

forest days


UPDATE (1/14.20):  Tuesdays are now sold out.  We still have availability on Thursdays.  Please register below. 

Forest Days at the Greenwich Botanical Center is an all weather, outdoor, preschool enrichment program designed to encourage children ages 3 through 5 to grow socially, emotionally and physically through interest-led play and natural exploration. The program will be offered Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12:15 – 2:45 p.m.

Our belief is that spending unstructured time in the forest stimulates each child’s innate curiosity. Outdoor nature play develops observation skills, problem solving, logic and reasoning skills and encourages taking risks. Activities include creating secret habitats, making forest stew, observing critters in their natural environments, going on nature walks, singing, art and free play.
