BLUFF LAKE BUDS
Our Family Preschool Program will resume again when the weather gets warmer. If you haven’t attended a class before, please email Keith with the subject line “Preschool” to be contacted about this new program as the time gets closer. In the spring (likely April), we will be exploring a different format than the one used in the fall of 2013, but the class will still be fun for all.
Here are some possible topics for the spring:
- All things green
- Baby animals
- Flower power
“Bluff Lake Buds” is outdoor learning for little ones! This program gives families a chance to bring their BUDding naturalists (ages 2 to 5 years old) for an hour-long program at Bluff Lake.
Each class will address multiple learning styles and each month will have a fun, new theme, so your preschooler has a chance to build their knowledge of nature and grow into a steward of our Earth.
Ages: 2-5 years old. Children MUST be accompanied by an adult.
Cost: $5 per child per class in advance. $7 for day-of registration. Adults are free. Please no more than 2 adults per child. The fee can be paid either by cash or check on the day of the class or by mailing a check to: Bluff Lake Nature Center, 4755 Paris St. Suite 190, Denver, CO 80239.
Registration is required*. To register, please email email@example.com with the information below or call 720-708-4079 to reserve your spot(s). Spots are limited. Only 15 spots available per class. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.

*We need at least 5 kids registered in order to hold the class. If we do not have 5 kids registered by 1 day before the class, the class will be cancelled. We will contact you in the case of a cancellation.
Once we receive your registration, we will send you a confirmation email with a waiver attached to fill out before the class or as soon as you arrive. Waivers are required to participate.
NOTE: We currently do not have an indoor space at Bluff Lake, so the entire preschool program will be outdoors. Please dress appropriately for seasonal changes. We also only have port-o-let bathroom facilities, so if your child requires a changing table, we suggest changing him/her at home before the program.
Supervision: Although we will have 1 educational staff member leading the program, we will need support from parents and other adults during the program to ensure things go smoothly and efficiently. This is particularly important during station and exploration time.
Safety: Safety is of utmost concern to us. We will try to take every possible precaution for the safety of your child and the other children in attendance of the program. However, as nature is an unpredictable entity, Bluff Lake Nature Center is not liable for harmed caused on its property.
Weather Policy: In the case of inclement weather, the program will be cancelled at Bluff Lake Staff’s discretion. We will make every effort not to cancel, but in the event of a weather cancellation, we will try to let you know at least 2 hours prior to the program. If bad weather occurs during the program, we will likely move under the Pavilion at the bottom of the stairs at Bluff Lake or cancel the program altogether.
Thank you for your interest in our new program!
