Nature's Buddies Toddler Programs: Winter Series

Learn to engage your child’s wonder and curiosity about nature! Caretakers will learn to guide your 2 to 4 year old child in nature play, engage in exciting hands-on learning that can continue after each class, and even meet a live zoo animal. During our “Winter Series” programs we will learn that even during the winter months the needs of all living creatures can be found outside: clean water to drink, food to gather, and shelter for refuge. Grown-ups must come ready to play! Class is rain or shine and considerable time is spent out in the zoo, so please dress appropriately.

Parents will receive email reminders 2 days prior to your program start date. Registration is for one child and one adult. Parents can choose either Thursday or Saturday sessions.

 

If you don’t receive an electronic confirmation/receipt within 24 hours of registering online, please contact the Zoo’s Education Department at 918-669-6219 or email us.

Parents registering for all the Thursday or Saturday sessions at once will receive $2 off per session at check-out.
