Early Childhood Enrichment

What is Parents & Tots?!

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 real live farm animals in the Parents & Tots classes at the Double J's Farm!

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!

Q- What should my child wear?
