Little Leaves

Little Leaves is a movement, story and art program for ages 5 and under at the LEAF Education Center. Each program explores a nature-focused theme and features a special storytime with lots of opportunities to move and wiggle and sing. The storytime is followed by an open-ended, process-oriented art experience where adults and children can have fun experimenting together with an array of art materials. The programs have been designed with the intent of offering a playful and creative environment for all children 5 and under (with parent/caregiver participation).
