Zoo Sprouts

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!

Zoo Sprouts 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.

Zoo Sprouts will consist of two different seasons in 2017. The first season will be "Alphabet Zoo." We will use the alphabet to explore different animals in the Zoo and the big, big world around us. The second season will be "Nature's Rainbow." The world is full of beautiful colors and patterns. We will use these to inspire learning adventures!
