ZooCub Classes

Looking for a fun, educational experience for your kids or grandkids?  

ZooCub classes will explore topics like textures, colors, senses, movement, and habitats, with a different class each month.  Every class includes a lesson, craft, up-close animal encounter, and a tour of the Zoo! The classes for kids age 3 and younger are designed for an adult and child. Kids age 4 and up are welcome to attend with an adult or on their own. Each adult is welcome to accompany up to two children.

These class series are available for three age groups:

  • Infant and Toddler (Under age 2, with an adult).
  • Preschool (Ages 2 - 3, with an adult).
  • Prekindergarten (Ages 4-5)

Advanced registration is recommended. ZooCub Classes may be cancelled due to minimal enrollment, in which case a full refund will be issued.
