Zoo Tots

Our Zoo Tots program provides an exciting experience for one 2-4 year old child paired with one adult caregiver. The adult participant may be a parent, grandparent, other family member, babysitter, or any other adult excited about sharing this special time at the Zoo! While our Zoo Tots I class meets entirely indoors and our Zoo Tots II class has an outdoor component, both classes include activities and crafts designed to be completed with the assistance of the caregiver. Please see class descriptions and register for an age-appropriate class below.

Because of space constraints and program design, siblings and extra adults may not attend these classes.
