Each Class is led by a Burgess Society Teacher/Naturalist who is Pediatric First Aid Certified and CORI checked with a Summer Naturalist Assistant. Peter Rabbit’s Friends are also assisted by a volunteer Junior Naturalist Aide. Classes are limited up to 12 children for Peter Rabbit’s Friends.
This special class for our youngest scientists allows for “monkeying around” with a science theme and lots of time for exploration. Each day starts with a Curious George themed book and includes activities ranging from amphibians to dinosaurs.
FACT or FABLE SESSION: Peter Rabbit's Friends only
Peter Rabbit’s Friends explore a new topic each day ranging from the secret life of toads to whether or not snakes are slimy. They work to create special houses for tiny woodland creatures, maybe even a Fairy.
