Little Zoo Waddlers

Join in the fun with Little Zoo Waddlers, a six-week class series designed for children ages birth-3 and a caregiver! A group of penguins is called a waddle, and in this class, we will waddle around the zoo and wiggle our way through Zoomazium. Join zoo educators for a twice-weekly class series that includes one morning each week exploring different areas of the zoo and one morning of private Zoomazium playtime with all the Waddlers. Over the course of the six weeks, we will tour the whole zoo. Bring your stroller and wee ones and snacks for the tour days!
