Special Note

In an effort to focus and enhance future programs, the zoo's Early Childhood classes (including Walkin' and Rollin', Tiny Tyke Time, Zoo Sprouts and Young Explorers) will only be offered through February 2018. 

Thank you for joining us for past Early Childhood classes and we hope you will experience the zoo in other ways soon. We invite you to check back for new programming later in the year.

Zoo Sprouts

Giraffe Square

Whether you are new to the zoo or visit weekly, a Zoo Sprouts class is a chance for you and your child together to spend time with other animal lovers, including a special zoo guide who will help you get to know our amazing animals even better. Each hour and a half adventure will start in the classroom with activities exploring the amazing world of animals through movement, creative play, stories, art and songs. Next, your guide will lead you on a journey of discovery to learn more about zoo animals relating to the class theme.
