Want to get outside with your baby but just don’t know HOW? It’s not as difficult as it may seem! Join J Baby on January 5 at 11:00 am to learn how and why babies thrive out-of-doors. In this hands-on session, Tinkergarten leader and former preschool teacher, Emmaline Rosenthal, will facilitate a safe, stimulating playscape in which babies can fall in love with the natural world. Emmaline will offer suggestions and guidance based on your individual baby, as well as answer any questions or concerns you might have about nature play for these tiny humans. All comfort levels with the outdoors and messy play are welcome! Please note that the class will meet in the Gan, which is the natural play area in between the main front parking lots next to the large fountain.
