Preschool Series

  • Preschool programs are designed for children 3-5 years old (parent must stay with child under 4yrs). Classes meet year-round at the Watershed Center and always include outdoor exploration, so children and adults should dress accordingly. The classes are offered on Tuesdays (10:00 – 11:30AM)) and Wednesdays (1:00-2:30PM).

    Class fee per child: $10 member/$15 non-member

    Register your child for individual classes or the entire series.
