About Toddler Connections

Toddler Connections (TC) is an eight-week group for toddlers ages 18 months to 2.9, led by seasoned teaching staff, including BOPN co-Founder Sara Murray. Children are accompanied by parents or other caregivers. Families connect with nature and one another and learn about nature-based early childhood education. We engage children through song, reading nature-based stories, and free play.

 

Your child will benefit from regular socialization with a group of peers in the comforting presence of their parent or caregiver. Parents appreciate spending time with an experienced educator, who serves as a resource regarding preschool, parenting, and more!

 

"In the woods and gardens that are his playgrounds, our son has come into his own.  When we walk in in the morning, it's like Cheers--everybody knows his name and he is clearly part of a community."
