Little Explorers Nature Preschool Program

Explore nature with your toddler or preschooler! Nature Preschool programs are open to children ages 2-6 with an adult. Classes include nature walks, stories, songs, and other activities.  Nature ABCs and 1,2,3 and movement activities are part of the fun. Choose either 10:30-11:30 am or 12:30-1:30 pm session.

 The prices include the service fee you will
be charged at checkout. 
At Ladew Gardens we take great
pride in 
offering a wonderful variety of special events 
and educational programs throughout the year, 
and we make every effort to keep the ticket price
for these events and programs as low as possible.
Tickets for all of Ladew’s programming are now 
administered through ShowClix… unfortunately 
the service fees they charge are not within 
our control. Thank you for your understanding.
