The Bob Jones Nature Center new and enhanced Cross Timbers Forest Preschool program is based on European-style Forest Schools. Children, aged 3-5 years old, will explore nature through hands-on activities, nature lessons, music, stories, hikes, and crafts. At the Bob Jones Nature Center, we conduct our classes based on the research that natural environments inspire more creative play, improved concentration, teamwork, cooperation, and problem solving. The Cross Timbers Ecosystem provides the ideal outdoor classroom for your children to grow and begin to understand how humans, their development, and the natural world are integrally connected.
Many of us know intuitively that children should spend time engaged outdoors and there is ample scientific research which confirms our intuition. Course topics are carefully chosen to allow children to experience the Cross Timbers flora and fauna at their most active and interesting times during their life cycle.
A healthy, organic snack will be provided during the class. Please wear closed toed shoes, clothing appropriate for outdoor weather, and bring a water bottle. *Children must be potty independent. Want to send more than one child? Receive a 10% sibling discount.
