Zoo Tots (ages 2 - 5 years)

Join us for a six-week series where children learn through play with their favorite play partner: you! Each week you will make friends with nature through play experiences, art, songs, special animal friends and take a zoo hike to an animal exhibit.

The Zoo Tots series is offered twice a year, in Spring (March to May) and Fall (mid-August to September). Zoo Tots programs are divided into two age groups: 2 to 3 years and 4 to 5 years.

Please note: Due to space limitations, only one adult may attend with each registered child. Only those registered for the class may attend. No additional children (including infants) and/or adults may attend with you and your child.
