    For more information, please contact: Ms. Zonda (Telephone: 765-366-9126).


    Be sure an check out our sister webpage Hands of the Future,Inc for this year's dates. We have four groups, PK-K, 1-2, 3-5 and 6-8. You can even preregister with Ms Zonda if you like.

    Experience a year of fun, learning and adventures about the world around us. Hands-on lessons, hikes (as weather permits), games, crafts and treats! Meetings are on Tuesdays or Thursdays, every three weeks. This keeps the group at a size allowing the experience for the children at a high quality, yet we don't want any child who is interested to not be able to join.
