Habitat Class Information


About

Habitat Classes are a fantastic introduction to PUDDLESTOMPERS programming and a great first class for any age.  During each class we investigate a different habitat or the animals that live in it. Activities include hands-on exploration, games, songs, craft, snack, and a story.  Participants receive an informational handout at the end of each class in order to extend learning into the home! Sign up for as many classes as you wish!

FAQ

Can a younger sibling under 2 years old accompany their sibling in class? Yes! Backpack babies, up to one year old, are welcome to accompany their older siblings.

What happens in the case of inclement weather? Classes are held rain or shine!

Where are winter classes held? All of our classes are held at our Nature Center in Newton.  We will still do outdoor exploring regardless of weather, but will conduct lesson, snack, and story inside in the case of cold temperatures or bad weather.
