Parents can register their child for all of the sessions in the 6-part series. Registration is limited to 12 children per series.  An adult caregiver should plan to participate with their child.


The program fee is $45 for children and includes all activity supplies for the program. There is no program fee for adults and children under 2.  Program fees can be paid online at time of registration. This program fee is in addition to Zoo admission, which is free for members. 


The ZooLittles program will meet in the Event Tent and may move to other parts of the zoo to accomplish the themed activities planned.   From the entrance, enter the path to the right and walk past the Amazonia rainforest, past the wolves, and you will find the garden on your right before the Event Tent on the large hill.   You can call ahead and ask at the education for updates on location. 


In the case of rain, we will announce an alternate location at the front gate.  Depending on the forecast, we may use the Kiwanis shelter, event tent, or move it entirely indoors in one of our classrooms. Cancellation is also possible due to severe weather. Notifications will be sent out via email at least one hour prior to program start time for participants. Programs cancelled due to weather can be rescheduled for another time.

Please dress for the weather. We recommend children wear play clothes and closed toed shoes, and bring sunscreen and water.
