Toddler Time Program

Spend some quality time with your toddler at the Minnesota Zoo. Sessions begin with 10-15 minutes of child-directed exploratory play* followed by a Zoo naturalist leading movement and art activities, an interactive story, and an animal encounter (with at least one hands-on experience with a toddler-sized animal), all focusing on the topic of the day.

*”Play provides the ultimate curriculum for social, physical and cognitive development.” (Francis Wardle, Ph.D., author of the book, Tomorrow’s Children) Toddler Time incorporates play into each program in order to provide opportunities that foster science learning by encouraging observation, exploration, and discovery.
