School Enrichment Series

Starting this fall we are offering a 100% outdoors, in-person, hands-on school enrichment program. Our engaging grade-specific curriculum enables students to develop a coherent and scientifically-based view of the world around them as they engage in practices to build, deepen, and apply their knowledge. These core ideas build on each other, and on what they’re learning throughout the school year. To ensure all necessary health and safety social distancing guidelines will be followed and students are required to bring a mask to wear when asked.

Parents will need to use the grade your child is entering in September 2020 to determine the appropriate enrichment series age group for their child.

If you are a homeschooling group or a pod group interested in setting up a separate series for your group, please contact programs@tenaflynaturecenter.org.

**Programs are held rain, snow, or shine except in the case of inclement weather. No flip-flops, crocs or any open-toed or soft-soled shoes. In case of rain pack a raincoat or a poncho (no umbrellas please). During the winter months please dress warmly.**
