Join the Turtle Tot Club, a series of programs developed for preschool-age children, ages 3 to 5, at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center. The one-hour programs, offered at no charge, introduce young children to the natural world around them with sensory experiences, while reinforcing colors, shapes, math and fine motor skills. When possible, sessions include outdoor time.
Programs run from 10-11 a.m. There is a minimum enrollment of 6 and a maximum of 15 children. Children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver and pre-registration is required. To register for classes or for more information, call 620-566-1456 or 1-877-243-9268.
