Join us for our early childhood education toddler program! Hatchlings is a hands on play and exploration time just for 2-4 year olds and an accompanying adult. During this 60 minute program we will sing songs, explore our senses, visit animal friends, and have a yummy snack! Meet new human friends to explore the zoo with afterwards!

Each program starts at 11am and will run for approximately an hour and include a combination of games, crafts, story time, sing-a-longs, and animal friend visits.

These programs are specifically designed to promote hands on, self-guided play and exploration.

Program price includes admission into the zoo for a child and an adult, a snack, and activities.
