These programs invite adults and young children to discover the Zoo together. All children must be accompanied by an adult who is prepared to take part in the activities. For everyone's safety and enjoyment, unregistered children including siblings may not attend, with the exception of infants who are not yet crawling.
Registration for Winter and Spring Preschool classes will begin in early December. Please check back frequently for class descriptions and registration instructions.

December 14: Miss Piggy
You’ll go hog wild over this class! Read a pig tale, make some curly crafts, and be tickled pink! We’re "sow" excited! Don’t miss it!
December 21: The Great Gonzo
Everyone “noses” this class will be fantastic! Spend some time with our more interesting critters. Like Gonzo, they may not be cute, but they’re certainly great! See what makes them so special. We’ve got a sense about this one!
