COME PLAY IN THE DIRT! ZooLittles is an exciting and dynamic program designed for pre-schoolers (age 3 - 5) to help develop young children's’ physical, emotional, and intellectual growth through exciting hands-on experiences. This includes working in the zoo’s organic garden to understand soil, plant, and insect relationships. Children participate in worm composting & understanding its role in soil development; they will also interact with zoo animals, feed them, and learn about their many different varieties, environments, and relationships. Group interaction in simulated and real environments will be promoted and encouraged with guided activities and free play time.
Vision: Creating opportunities for children to gain appreciation for and become stewards of the natural world.
