Whirligigs Preschool Program

This program runs four sessions throughout the year. Whirligigs meet weekly for a 1.5 hour class. Our experienced educators provide a safe and inviting space to explore the natural world.  Activities are age appropriate and engaging.  The Whirligigs program is a drop-off program open to potty trained children ages 3–5.  Children must turn 3 before their first registered class. Pre-registration is required.  Sign your child up for a few classes or for the whole season.
