Investigate Nahant Marsh with Toddlers

Learning, understanding, inquiring and exploring begin the minute a child is born. From the first day of their life, they’re looking at everything, wondering about the world and the people around them. As children grow into toddlers and preschoolers, they are into everything — literally. Pulling out the brooms, towels, make-up bags and hair-bands, and piling up everything on the floor they for someone to notice as they count out the objects. Soaked in mud, children run back into the house, beaming in pride at their family members because they found an insect.

The exploration never stops, and the learning does not either. It’s the perfect combination that Nahant Marsh Education Center wants to continue to foster during childhood development through their early childhood programs.

Taking place on every second Tuesday of the month, Nahant Marsh Education Center provides a “story, craft and an outdoor adventure” for children, 3-5 years old. Topics and themes include animal habitats, life in a marsh, how animals move, observing nature, the life of bats and the life of insects.

The Marsh allows young children to explore, run, inquire, and investigate the wild in a supervised environment. The cost is $5/per child or $3/per child with a Nahant Marsh membership. The morning program takes place from 10am to 11am and the afternoon program runs from 2pm to 3pm. A parent or adult caregiver must be present with the child.

Nahant Marsh is located at 4220 Wapello Avenue in Davenport. For more information, visit their website or call 563-336-3370.
