Cub Club

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!

Cub Club 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.

Each month features a new lesson - join us for one or attend them all!
