Nature Explorers Preschool (3-5)

Preschool

Using the Zoo’s natural setting, Nature Explorers Preschool focuses on developing the “whole child” -- i.e., cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and creative development. Curriculum increases direct contact time with the outdoors through discoveries about the Zoo plants and animals. Children ages 3, 4 and 5 will have daily zoo explorations, interactions with “animal ambassadors” in the classroom, and participate in special events.
