Class Description

Rain or shine, your little ones (walkers to 5-year-olds)  will splash, explore, paint, and make scientific discoveries in nature’s laboratory with our teacher, Corie Robie. The kids will enjoy the wonder of our outdoor studio and observe how it changes with the weather, creating different and exciting learning experiences.  Classes are 60 minutes long, and will only be cancelled for thunderstorms.

Our classes get messy!
- Bring a change of clothes and towel
- While all our materials are washable, as parents, you know just some things don't come out in the wash! Please send your children in play clothes that won't break your heart if they get stained.
- Dress your child appropriately for the weather (layers recommended)
- Pre-apply sunscreen - Bring water
