Toddler & Family Class

Designed for children ages 18 - 30 months with the accompaniment of an adult. Children may continue past 30 months old with an adult, and explore the forest at their own pace.


As an introduction to our program philosophy, Chickadee Toddler and Family Class provides a foundation for early discoveries in nature. Parks Plus Creation educators provide a safe, welcoming space for children and caregivers to develop a positive connection with nature through social connections and sensory explorations. We hope that these experiences will create lasting memories, and lifelong curiosity and stewardship.


Each Chickadee class we sing songs, use tools, create connections to forest creatures and plants, participate in group movement, and explore sensory materials. Educators guide and support children and adults by introducing positive language around problem solving and building peer relationships. All activities are optional; we support families in following the lead of their child, to see what interests them about nature.

Classes take place in the Presidio near the Arguello Gate, exact location provided two weeks before the class begins.
