December Theme: Forest Friends
Big or small, there are animals all around us. Where do forest animals live, what do they eat, and how do they survive? Find out at Little Explorers, a weekly play-based program that encourages children to explore, discover, investigate and create. Free for Members / Included with Park admission.

About Little Explorers Program
Little Explorers aims to provide an exemplary, developmentally appropriate early childhood program for children and families. We work to create a learning environment that models best practices for high quality early education experiences for young children and provide opportunities for parents and caregivers to observe and learn. 

The philosophy is based on constructive theories in which children construct their own knowledge through active learning. This play-based environment encourages children to explore, discover, investigate and create. The curriculum and materials are relevant, meaningful, current and purposeful to encourage children’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. 

Little Explorers meets at the Mill Building in Paul Bunyan's Forest Camp at Turtle Bay, every Thursday at 10am unless otherwise noted. Free for Turtle Bay Members / Included in Park Admission.
