Zoo Tot Classes
Come let the world surround you as you and your child explore all there is to learn about our animal friends. Zoo Tot classes combine an “on your own exploratory” playtime featuring crafts, sensory bins and educational stations, along with structured circle time, sing-a-long and an animal encounter. Play activities are incorporated into each Zoo Tot class in order to foster science learning by encouraging observation, exploration, and discovery.
Date: Offered Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays
Ages: 2-5 years
Cost: $8-10 for zoo members $10-12 for nonmembers
Zoo Tot classes are approximately 1 hour in length. Classes will be held inside the auditorium of Roosevelt Park Zoo’s visitor center. 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 2-5 and 1 adult caregiver. Due to the size and structure of Zoo Tots, additional adults will not be allowed.
Space is limited to 10 participants per class. Registration is available online, by calling the zoo or during your next zoo visit.
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.
