Visit Minnesota’s monk seals at the Minnesota Zoo, the only place in the U.S (outside of Hawaii) that you can see these animals in human care. Discover what makes these marine mammals so marvelous in a class celebrating these critically endangered seals from Hawaii.

These child-only classes are designed specifically with your preschooler in mind as they transition from toddlers to kindergartners! Through child-directed exploration, play, and age-appropriate activities, we will discover the Zoo’s amazing animals and their habitats. Research indicates that children learn best in an environment which allows them to explore, discover, and play. (J.E. Fox) Play in particular enhances language development, social competence, creativity, imagination, and thinking skills. (D.P. Fromberg and D.F. Gullo).
