These classes are especially designed for young people (ages 4–9) and their favorite adults. Our activities, excursions, crafts and games will make learning fun for young and old alike. The whole Zoo is our classroom and visits to “behind-the-scenes” areas with zookeepers and trainers will make each class special.

Wild Wonders Preschool is a unique program that brings the natural world alive! Offered for ten consecutive Mondays each fall and spring, we will connect children with nature by encouraging their natural affinity for nature. By developing their sense of place in the world over the ten weeks, this will allows us to provide a continuous theme, deeper learning, and foster relationships between teacher, students, and the animals.

The fall session will focus on the many ways animals get ready for winter and the spring session will focus on our domestic animal friends at the Wells Fargo Family Farm.

Ages: 3-5 years old by September 1, 2016 or in Kindergarten
