Zoo Tots (ages 18 months - 5 years old)

page header

We redesigned this series to better accommodate families with multiple children so they can attend the class together. Improvements that were made include:
• ZooTots will be available for 2 age groups: 18 months - 4 years old, and 4 - 5 year old
• Extended class time to include a Zoo walk to visit an animal exhibit
• One parent/ adult may bring up to 3 registered children to class

Join us for a program exclusively for families with young children. Nashville Zoo offers a six-week series designed for you to spend quality time with the children in your life, whether you are a parent, grandparent or caregiver. Come to Nashville Zoo for 6 consecutive weeks to have fun and learn together. Each week we will make a special craft, meet special animal friends in the classroom and go on a zoo walk to an animal exhibit.

Adults may take turns attending each week with the registered children. All siblings need to be registered for class and a minimum of 18 months old.
