Saplings – $110/mo per Participant

Our introduction to outdoor education programming, the Saplings sessions are a great way to ease your 3 – 5 year old into the wonderful world of Under the Arch Outdoor.

Every day unfolds differently based on the community present, their interests, the season, and the weather. While every day is different, play, exploration, and connection to each other and the land are integral themes woven into our experience together.

Our Nature Educators strive to provide children with opportunities to build an ongoing relationship with the natural world, with each other, and with themselves through laying the foundation for understanding reciprocity.

All children entering the Saplings sessions must be completely toilet proficient. Ratio for Saplings is six learners to one educator.
