FOND DU LAC, Wis. ( WFRV ) – Hope Preschool is opening their new Nature Classroom Sunday, October 27 from Noon to 2 p.m. for community families to explore all of the activities the unique facility has to offer.

The State Licensed, 4000-square-foot area features 10 developmentally appropriate activities for preschoolers.

Activities include a music area for dancing, an art table for creating young artists, and a mixing area that encourages students to work on social skills like sharing and teamwork.

Fine motor skills are enhanced in a 16-foot x 12-foot x 12-inch sand area surrounded by cut logs.

Problem-solving is fun for children in the “messy materials” area with logs, branches, and leaves to create a fort.

The flower and vegetable garden comes complete with a magnifying glass for spying butterflies and bugs.
