Nature Baby

Parent and Child Program
Ages 6 months – 2

Bring your baby or toddler as we explore High Park in winter and learn ways to introduce our children to the natural world! Look forward to nature songs and rhymes for the young ones, informative nature hikes for the adults and outdoor time for all. Please note that the trails we use for hikes are not stroller-friendly.

Activities are seasonal and weather dependent, but we focus on:

  • Hiking the trails of High Park for parent and child to learn about nature
  • Circle time with seasonal nature songs, action rhymes and stories
  • Nature crafts
  • Exploration activities that encourage babies, toddlers and adults to use their senses
  • Learning and singing bird songs

“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
