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 innate affinity for the outdoors.  By developing their sense of place in the world over the ten weeks, this will allow us to provide a continuous theme, deeper learning, and foster relationships between teacher, students, and the animals.

Throughout this exciting program, children will explore nature’s many wonders first-hand through dramatic play, art, stories, songs and animal encounters! 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: 4-6 years of age AND children must be group ready to participate: this includes the ability to listen and follow directions, remain with the group at all times, follow safety rules independently, and communicate with the instructor.  All children must also be toilet trained.
Fees: Members: $220, Non-members: $260

Class sessions Each session consists of ten classes.
2020 Spring Session – Due to renovations in the classroom space, we will not be having the 2020 spring session.

Did you know that penguins can consume fish equaling up to 15 percent of their total body weight every single day? Come watch zookeepers as they feed our African penguins in the 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit! This is a great way to learn more about these active animals and ask our zookeepers any questions you may have. Feeding demonstrations are every day at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. behind the Penguin Café.
