Nature Play Afterschool

Hitchcock’s Nature Play Afterschool Program for children ages 6–9 is all about getting kids outside to run, jump, climb, splash, invent, imagine, play and be a free-range kid. There are many positive impacts of nature play on children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being. It’s also an effective way to build a generation of committed environmental stewards. Multiple studies over more than 25 years have found that frequent, unstructured childhood play in natural spaces is the most common influence on the development of life-long conservation values and conservation behaviors. Nature Play is offered every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30pm in three sessions, Fall, Winter, and Spring, throughout the school year. Learn more about out teaching staff, here.
