Preschool Classes

FONZ early learning classes are designed to help young children and their caretakers discover a whole new view of the Smithsonian's National Zoo. These aren't your average mommy and me programs!

Preschool classes engage your little animal lover in 90 minutes of animal and STEM-based fun. Interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, and exciting Zoo walks engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world — and teach you something new about animals as well. Classes for children ages 2-6 are offered as one-day weekend classes or as weekly, themed series (Nature Cubs).

Looking for something new to do with your baby or toddler? Join us on Thursday and Friday mornings for Zoo Tunes, a 45-minute music and movement program for ages 0-2.
