Zoo Tot classes are approximately 1 hour in length. Classes will be held inside the auditorium of Roosevelt Park Zoo’s visitor center. Registered participants only need to arrive a few minutes before the class start time. Auditorium doors will open 10 minutes before class starts. The registration fee for class includes 1 child ages 2-5 and 1 adult caregiver. Due to the size and structure of Zoo Tots, additional adults will not be allowed.
Classes are designed for a caregiver to interact with and help facilitate in the learning of their child. In order to best serve all of our Zoo Tot participants, unregistered children may not be able to attend. An exception for infants will be made for adults who can still fully participate with their registered child. Younger and older children are welcome to register for class, please keep in mind that programs are geared to a specific age range and may not contain age appropriate activities for children outside of that range.
Space is limited to 10 participants per class. Registration is available online, by calling the zoo or during your next zoo visit.
