Young Children

Zoo School

Uniquely designed  for children ages 3-5, Zoo School is a nature-based preschool where children explore, experiment and learn through a lens of nature and animals.  Each day the children discover the natural world through activities fostering academic, emotional and social growth. Operating since 2004, Zoo School is a fully licensed preschool where children go out into the Zoo every day.  With a low staff to student ratio, Zoo School teachers empower children with activities that enhance their appreciation of nature, environmental education and learning. incorporating early childhood philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori and Emilia Reggio, Zoo School emphasizes child-centered exploration and independent learning.
