Nature Cubs: Animal Alphabet

asian elephant

Z is for Zoo! Each week, a different letter will guide our explorations of a Zoo animal and the adaptations that help it survive. Children will make an animal alphabet book to take home at the end of the series. 

Nature Cubs preschool classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, animal artifacts and exciting Zoo walks to engage your preschooler's sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world. There is no animal contact or behind-the-scenes access in Nature Cubs classes.

Note: Nature Cubs preschool classes are for children and their adult buddies to enjoy together. Infants worn in a carrier or who remain in a stroller/car seat during the program are welcome at no additional charge.

  • "Animal Alphabet" will meet once a week for five weeks.
  • Classes for 2-3 year olds will meet Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Choose your day of the week to attend below.
  • Make-up classes are available on a limited basis with prior approval.
