The Zoo’s 28-acre outdoor “classroom” offers endless possibilities for exploration and discovery.
This play-based, early education program focuses on teaching through rich experiences. Early Explorers will learn to have a deep appreciation for the natural world through gardening, outdoor play, and exploration. With a student-teacher ratio of 9:1, students are grouped together ages 3-5 to enhance the development of both academic and social skills. Train rides, animal encounters, and art are incorporated into the week.
