Nature babies (ages 6 months-18 months) learn the wild ways of High Park along with their parents as they listen to birds, touch the natural textures of the woods and enjoy the fresh air . Indoors, experienced leaders gently encourage participants to experience and appreciate nature playfully with songs, rhymes, crafts and sensory stations. Parents put the babies in a carrier for a guided hike in High Park’s north east corner. Parents also learn a wealth of new ways to explore nature with their young ones. Please note that the trails we use for hikes are not stroller-friendly.
Our activities are guided by the seasons and weather conditions. Some areas of focus will likely include:
“Nature Baby is an amazing program!….It was so neat to see the babies grow! And, to talk and walk with the other parents.” – Participant testimonial
“I loved it entirely: the time in the Nature Centre (the atmosphere, the nature items & toys, the animals, the songs) and the hikes & activities in the woods. The pace & friendliness was just right. And I really enjoyed learning tidbits about nature in the park.” -Participant testimonial
