Early Childhood Programs

Join us for one of Warner's early childhood programs as we explore the natural world through hikes, art projects and story time. Warner offers a variety of programs for you and your child to choose from throughout the year.

Warner Explorers Preschool Program

Warner Explorers introduces children to the world of nature in an age-appropriate preschool setting. Our low child to teacher ratio promotes relationship building and is ideal for our young outdoor explorers. Knowing that children have incredible curiosity about the world, we use experiential learning techniques and nature based activities to encourage observations, questions, and self-discovery.

Explorers is held on Monday mornings from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. beginning mid-September 2015. The program is designed for children ages 3-5 (must be 3 by September 1 and potty trained).
