Come join the Zoo’s early childhood education specialists, who know how to turn learning into FUN for both you and your child! The learning blocks all connect to animal facts and green practices, making each program unique and fun. The content targets both the young child and the parent who accompanies the child. A different topic is offered each month, but each session begins with our fun active-learning stations and include a special encounter with a Zoo animal ambassador that is sure to entertain the grown-up guests as much as the kids.
Please note: No siblings allowed. Strollers are highly recommended.
