Little Explorers Playgroup

May 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Due to construction of our River Outpost, this program has been moved from the Riverside back to our Main Campus. Please check in at our main building and meet Moriah in the Children’s Library as usual! Thanks for your understanding & flexibility.

Our final spring meeting will take place at Connie’s Classroom, nestled in the prairie off of our west parking lot access point. We will hike down to the edge of the river, explore the tall grass prairie and play pretend in the historical ruins at Riveredge. Indoor activities will be planned in case of inclement weather.

Cost per child: $7 for Non-Members | $5 for Trail Pass Members | FREE for All-Access Members

Playgroup Tips for Families

  • Little Explorers is a drop-in style playgroup which allows children to be engaged in unstructured, outdoor play and gives parents a chance to meet other adults.  A staff member or volunteer will be available to answer questions, supply equipment, or lead a hike if desired. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Playgroup explores in rain, wind, sun, and snow. Playgroup will be canceled if there is a risk of severe weather.  Watch the website for updates.
  • Any age is welcome to attend playgroup. Our average age range is 2-5 years old, but everyone benefits when there are children of all ages.
  • Our yard is stroller friendly near our play area. If we choose to go on a hike, we will also choose trails which are stroller friendly.

What to Bring:

o   Both parents and children should be dressed for the weather. This might include: rain pants, rain coat, waterproof boots, hat, mittens, snow pants, thermal underwear, and wear anything which can get dirty

o   Extra change of clothes for each child (can be left in the car)

o   Snack and water bottle (optional, but strongly recommended)
