Mini Monday

Join us for a Mini-Monday where your child guides their own explorations of the natural world, designed for children ages 2–5 to play and learn, along with an adult caregiver. Young children explore a variety of age-appropriate craft and activity stations at their own pace. Observe special demonstrations and hands-on presentations with our animal ambassadors.

Mini-Mondays are drop-in events which do not need registration.

Preschool Classes

Our preschool classes are designed for budding nature lovers ages 2 to 5, plus their caregivers. Each session has a different wild and wonderful focus. We include hands-on activities, crafts, songs, games, and some classes have a visit from a live animal ambassador! These classes take place in Lindsay’s downstairs classroom.

Register for your preschool class prior to the date of the class to reserve your spot. Enrollment in class does not include admissions to the museum. Please note that we do not accept homeschool vouchers for any Preschool classes.
