Oaks and Acorns Nature Play: Late Winter Sessions

RBG offers outdoor education programs for little explorers! Join us with your 2 to 5 year old throughout the year for fun and games as we explore and learn about our natural world.

Move, create, and discover during our morning early-years programs for children and caregivers.

Held Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings behind the Nature Centre in our Nature Play Space, this nature-based program for 2 to 5 year-olds is designed to inspire a life-long love of nature and the outdoors. Explore the natural world together through nature walks, storytelling, imaginative and loose parts play, and hands-on discovery, with all programs modified for safe outdoor interaction. This program takes place entirely outdoors.

The health and safety of participants and staff at RBG is our highest priority. Families will be required to complete a  COVID-19 screening, to be done online at home, the morning of their attendance in an Oaks and Acorns program. All participants, including children, adults, and staff will be required to keep face coverings or masks on at sign-in and outdoors whenever 2 metres of distance cannot be maintained between participants.

Pre-Registration is required for these programs. Registration opens January 10, 12 p.m.

Please Note: this is not a drop off program, you must stay with your child for the duration of the program
