Lil’ Club Classes

Let the world surround you and your little cub as you learn about our animal friends. Lil’ Classes feature an “on your own exploratory” playtime featuring sensory bins and education stations, along with structured circle time, sing-a-longs, crafts, and animal encounters. Play activities are designed to foster exploration by using our senses to encourage learning through observation and discovery.

Class Details

Lil’ Cub classes are approximately 45 minutes in length. Classes will be held inside the auditorium of Roosevelt Park Zoo’s visitor center, with visits into the zoo (please bring coats on colder days). Registered participants only need to arrive a few minutes before the class start time. Auditorium doors will open 10 minutes before class starts. The registration fee for class includes 1 child ages 18-24 months and 1 adult caregiver.

Space is limited to 6 participants per class. Registration is available online.

How it Works

Classes are designed for a caregiver to interact with and help facilitate in the learning of their child. In order to best serve all of our Zoo Tot participants, unregistered children may not be able to attend. An exception for infants will be made for adults who can still fully participate with their registered child. Younger and older children are welcome to register for class, please keep in mind that programs are geared to a specific age range and may not contain age appropriate activities for children outside of that range.


Cancellations and date changes must be made two weeks prior to scheduled programs. No refunds will be issued for cancellations within two weeks of the program date. No refunds will be issued for missed classes.
