Preschool Classes

To contain the spread of COVID-19, all Nature Cubs preschool programs are currently virtual. Nature Cubs in a Box, presented by Chase, is much more than a standard virtual preschool class. Bring the hands-on fun of Nature Cubs right into your home for five weeks with all the activity plans and supplies you need to dive right in for screen-free fun with the animals of the Smithsonian's National Zoo!

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 hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, and lots of wild STEM fun as they learn about some favorite Zoo friends like pandas, elephants, lions and monkeys.
