Early Childhood Enrichment
What is Tiny Animal Adventurers?!
Ages 18 months- 4 years old
A uniquely structured program that offers a place for caregivers and toddlers to play, learn and develop while meeting the animals at Double J!
What's more tot-thrilling than farm animals?
Little ones can learn about and experience real live farm animals in the Tiny Animal Adventure classes at the Double J's Farm!
(Formerly known as Parents & Tots)
In each 60 minute class, a parent/toddler duo might explore the farm grounds, listen to an animal-centric story, create a craft, feed animals, participate in Farm Yoga or play various games!
Each class is themed (e.g. Lucky Lizards, Animals of the Night, etc.) and will guide our activities for the week.
This is the perfect way to get your little one ready for Junior Farmers and a great activity for parents and siblings ranging in age!

What is Junior Farmers?!
Ages 3 -6 years old
A pre-school age enrichment program for kids who love animals and nature that will foster their independence and curiosity as they get down and dirty on the farm!
At Double J Farm, our Junior Farmers learn through hands-on, nature-based experiences that address the developmental needs of children ages 3 to 6 as they explore the plant life and animals at our farm.
These 60 minute classes take learning to a higher level than the Tiny Animal Adventure class and are primarily drop off. After one class, your animal lover or critter extraordinaire will want to join us all season long for this unique, down in the dirt learning experience that will last a lifetime!
Every week has its own theme, so your child will learn new concepts all year long! These themes guide our educational activities and include a variety of: animal, agricultural, science, and nature topics.

Frequently Asked Questions:
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.
