Explore, discover, and have fun at Lindsay! These preschool programs are discovery-based and include hands-on activities and introductions to live animals!

 

 

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.

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 exhibit hall admission for non-members.
  • Mini-Mondays are drop-in events which do not need registration.
