Fiddleheads: Preschool Drop-Off Series at Appleton...

Kids in Snow

About Fiddleheads: Preschool Drop-Off Series at Appleton Farms – WINTER SESSION

Its wintertime on the farm! Winter is an excellent time for animal tracking, maple syrup, and lots of winter barn chores. Join us on Wednesday mornings from 9:30AM to 12:30PM for a preschool drop-off series on farm animals, life cycles, plant parts, and farm fun!

After an opening circle, song, and morning observations, we’ll learn about the plants and animals that call the farm home and participate in daily barn and garden chores. We will also explore the woods and learn how to treat nature kindly. We pause for lunch at 11:30 before finishing our day with farm crafts, games, songs, and stories — and say goodbye until next week!

Session dates: 12/6; 12/13; 12/20; 1/10; 1/17; 1/24; 1/31; 2/7; 2/14; 2/28; 3/6; 3/13
