Tiny Green Trees, an eco-conscious child care center, offers sustainably focused options for kids and adults to explore the outdoors and engage in green living practices. The Nature Kindergarten, held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, gives 3- to 6-year-olds ample outdoor experiences that include two educational events per month at the Urban Ecology Center’s Menomonee Valley location, as well as hikes through Three Bridges Park along the Hank Aaron State Trail.
The Green Living workshops for adults, offered every other Wednesday evening, aim to create an environment for learning and collaborative connection between adults that are like-minded in their desire and efforts to live sustainably. Topics for April workshops, which begin at 7 p.m., include Cooking with Grains, April 2; Basic Culinary Knife Skills, April 9; and Being Green for Earth Day and Every Day, April 23.
Tiny Green Trees is certified as an eco-healthy child care center and has earned an additional certificate of commendation for applying the Go Green Rating Scale for Early Childhood Settings. The public is invited to learn more at an open house, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., April 5.
