We will welcome Spring and all its colors at our Nature Preschool at the Hitchcock Center with Colleen Kelley. Children will fill their art palettes with natural colors and discover how colors affect animals, plants and our own lives. Through movement, songs, crafts and live animal observations, children will investigate camouflage, natural plant dyes, plant patterns, chlorophyll and much more.


Out of a strong commitment to improve access to our programs we are now offering a sliding scale fee structure aimed to provide greater flexibility in choosing a price that is right for you and your family.
