Preschool and Kindergarten Groups
Bring your youngest learners to explore the unique aspects of a short-grass prairie in our 1.5-hour early-childhood programs. Each program features hands-on developmentally appropriate experiences and encourages curiosity and inspires a love of the natural world.
Early Childhood Program Options:
Preschoolers, Prairie Dogs, and Pronghorn – Learn about the animals and plants that call the prairie home in this program designed to provide hands-on sensory experiences through an outside nature experience and indoor learning centers.
Indians, Tipis, and Bison – Use your imagination as we pretend to go back in time to learn how the Cheyenne Indians survived on the prairie. Learn how the Cheyenne erected a tipi, hunted bison, and found food on the prairie in this hands-on and interactive program.
Farmers on the Prairie – Transform into a farmer as we explore how farmers grow crops, raise animals, and live on the prairie in this program designed to give your young learners a firsthand view of what it means to live off the land.
