Developed specifically with early childhood learning foundations in mind, this hour long class gives little learners a chance to explore nature and animals in a safe, nurturing environment. Get to know nature through play experiences, art, songs and stories, early science explorations, and of course - special animal friends! Supervised outings to zoo exhibits that complement the lesson may also be included, weather permitting. Each month holds a new lesson - attend one or enjoy them all!
Zoo Sprouts is designed to accommodate emerging independence - caregivers may participate with their child, or observe the fun from the adult seating area. Caregivers and children comfortable with drop-off are permitted to do so, provided the child is fully potty-trained. This program is for children 3 and 4 years old with adult caregiver participation optional.
Zoo Sprouts will provide two different themed seasons in 2019:
- The first season will be "Creature Features." We will explore the unique characteristics of animals, from nose to tail!
- The second season will be "Alphabet Zoo." Each month will focus on a new letter as we explore different animals as well as the big, big world around us.
