Fresh Air Kids meets once weekly, seasonally (winter, spring and fall) at Rust Nature Sanctuary in Leesburg and Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, Virginia. Registration is open now for both locations.
Fresh Air Kids classes are for children ages 5 and younger along with a parent or caregiver. Each week the class examines a different nature topic guided by the children’s inherent curiosity about the natural world. Parents and caregivers learn--and teach--along side our ANS educators. Activities involve crafts, songs, books, and nature journaling, but the main focus is hiking out of doors.
What are parents and caregivers saying about Fresh Air Kids?
~ “It’s fabulous. With so many electronics and screens, it’s good for the kids to get outside and into nature.” - Joanne Elvers, son Parker, 5, Fresh Air Kid ~
~ "The phrase, "thank you," cannot satisfactorily express how grateful Sam and I are for having been a part of F[resh] A[ir] K[ids] this Spring. My typically shy 2.5 year old came out of his shell and talked non-stop about what he learned at Mrs. O's class and how excited he was to go to Rust and see more nature." - Karen Kunc, son Sam, 2, Fresh Air Kid ~
~ "Thank you for leading such a fantastic nature program! It enriched her vocabulary (and mine, I learned a lot!), got her asking even more questions and gave us a jumping off point for many nature hikes and explorations to come." - Courtney Dillon, daughter Tessa, Fresh Air Kid ~
