Early Childhood Enrichment
Through songs, stories, art, cooking, science, and exploration, your child will be immersed in the life of the amazing animals, plants, and habitats of Double J Farm!
Double J offers a variety of Early Childhood Enrichment Classes for children ages 1-6 years old. Our Early Childhood Enrichment classes focus on teaching children skills that nurture a reverence for life, care-taking of both animals and the environment, sensory learning, and so much more! Our classes take place both indoors and outdoors and provide a unique environment to learn about animals, plants and ecology through interacting with them rather than just reading about them. We emphasize fostering a child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth using our farm and small animals, gardens and nature.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q- What protocols are we taking with COVID?
A- GROUP SIZE- We are limiting the size of each class to 5 children and are asking that only 1 parent attends per child. HANDWASHING – We have set up hand washing stations all around the farm. Children will be required to wash their hands when they arrive and during the day, at the end of each activity. If you have your own hand sanitizer, you are welcome and encouraged to use it throughout class. ONE TOUCH SUPPLIES- We have purchased additional supplies to insure that each child gets their own implements limiting multiple people touching the same supplies. Each child will receive their own supplies at the start of class and supplies will be heavily sanitized before next use. EMPLOYEE WELLNESS CHECKS – All employees will have their temperatures taken daily and will have to sign in certifying that they/as well as any other family member have not been sick in the last 14 days. SOCIAL DISTANCING – We have rewritten all of our activities to provide as much social distancing as possible. SUNSCREEN, BUG SPRAY ETC – Please make sure that you apply all sunscreen and/or bug spray on your child before sending them to class. SIBLINGS/FRIENDS/FAMILY MEMBERS – We are requesting that siblings, friends and family members do not linger on property before or after class as we are limiting the number of people on property and trying hard to control social distancing when possible.
Q- What happens if my child can't make one of the classes?
A- We have a 72-hour cancellation policy. If you contact us by phone and/or email 72 hours prior to the class start, we can re-schedule your child's class. Refunds can be given 14 days prior to the class session. Payment and rescheduling cannot be credited towards other camps, classes, or lessons.
Q.- Can I register for multiple classes and will the activities always be the same?
A- You can register for as many classes as your schedule allows! Each week has it's own theme, so activities will be different week to week. The Junior Farmers also has a Tuesday and Thursday lesson plan, so children could come twice a week for that class and complete different activities!
Q.- Do you take drop-ins?
A- We do not take drop-ins, you must pre-register online.
Q- What can I do if a class session is booked at capacity?
A- You can sign up for the wait list, and if there are any cancellations, we will contact you to add your child to the roster.
Q- Does my child need to be potty trained?
A- For Junior Farmer's admittance, yes all children must be potty trained.
Q- What should my child wear?
A- Your child should wear comfortable clothes that you wouldn't mind getting a little dirty. They will be walking around a farm and around large animals, so protective boots are strongly encouraged even if they are not riding.
**Winter- Especially for their riding lesson make sure your child is sent with: warm gloves and socks, boots, and an extra layer of pants they can put on before riding.
