KinderZoo is a program for preschoolers and their grown-ups to play, discover, and learn in a fun, interactive way.  Join us as we explore different animals and habitats, using games, BioFacts, and engaging, age-appropriate activities. Each class will also include the opportunity to meet an ambassador animal up-close and learn all about them!

To sign up for KinderZoo, click on the appropriate time slot under your preferred date below. Please note that only kids need to be registered but everyone who wants to attend will need a timed-ticket to enter the Zoo. 

Registration will close at 4 p.m. the day before the class starts (no same day registration) but may fill much earlier!
Please note: there must be a minimum of 5 students to hold a KinderZoo class.
