Growing Up Wild, a once-a-week preschool introduction, running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Mondays, through May 21. Registration is open for both programs.
 
Nestled among nearly 100 acres of open space, the preschool classroom provides a unique opportunity for children to explore the natural world while becoming prepared for school.

“Berks Nature knows how important outdoor play is for a child’s development,” shares preschool Director Anne Muvdi. “Studies show participation in ‘wild’ nature before age 11 to be a particularly potent pathway toward shaping both environmental attitudes and behaviors in adulthood.”  

 

Cost: Mon. preschool: $50/child/Mon. Students must be registered by the Wed. before the Mon. they attend. Location: 575 St. Bernardine St., Reading., To schedule a tour or register, call 610-372-4992, ext. 115, or email Anne.Muvdi@BerksNature.org.
