Judy Gilroy recently joined the staff at the New Canaan Nature Center Preschool, taking on the role as the teacher of the new Mommy, Me and Nature program.

She comes to the program with an early childhood degree from Norwalk Community College and years of preschool experience within the New Canaan community with a concentration on the 2-year-old age group.

Mommy, Me & Nature classes are offered to children between the ages of 18 and 36 months with a parent or caregiver.

The classes weave age appropriate lessons and activities that incorporate nature themes, stories, exploration of the center's 40 acres and visits with live animals right in the classroom.

Registration for fall is now open. For information, visit newcanaannature.org or call Marianne Dec at 203-966-9577, ext. 16.
