Wee Wolverines Children’s Programs
Wee Wolverines is a holistic early childhood education program for children ages 2-5. Each program focuses on a particular project, while always considering the whole child through a “head, heart and hands” approach. Children will have music circles, story time, movement breaks and one crafty/nature-based activity per session.
Wee Wolverines is designed as a child-without-caregiver program, during which the children will play and explore in an engaging and collaborative environment. Caregivers, who must remain on site during the session, are invited to use this time to enjoy a short break in the cafe. Have a snack or beverage, bring a book or craft, or take this time to get some work done!
Time: All programs are 10-11:30am
