Secret Gardens Winter Adventure Nature Classes

For children from four to seven years of age, we offer an afternoon nature class on Wednesdays in the Secret Gardens Outdoor Classroom in Beverly, MA. Victoria Hackett leads each nature class. They are 1.5 hours from 3:00-4:30 during the Fall, Spring and Summer and in Winter. Each Afternoon Adventure Nature Class begins with a Welcome gathering with a Floorbook question about the topic we are exploring that day. which leads the group into a nature-based art activity. Children are then invited to play in our Secret Gardens where they will find additional activities to explore in our Maker Space, Fishing Bridge, Mud Kitchen, Wash and Dry Garden, Story Walk, Raised Garden Beds, Row Boat, Water Wall, Log Hotel, and so much more. This older group is also more inclined to do long-range nature projects. On cold weather days, we have access to our “Club House.” Each nature class concludes with a gathering that includes a journal writing, story, and reflecting in our Forest Corner.

Our nature classes provide important socialization and exploration for children. The experience acclimates and invites each child into an outdoor adventure of playful learning and encourages long range nature projects. Our afternoon adventures and explorations will be based on the interest of the children. The focus of this Nature Class will be for our older children, however, since we are a multigenerational program, siblings and parents are welcome to stay and play. Drop off is optional. Limited spaces.
