Oaks and Acorns Nature Play (Outdoors)

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 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.
