Every class will focus on a particular topic and feature both special animal encounters and a guided Zoo excursion! Zoo admission before or after program is not included in the program cost.
Toddler Programs / Zoo Tots
Brevard Zoo’s toddler programs / zoo tots provide enriching opportunities for children ages 2 to 4 to experience nature in a safe, healthy, and happy environment. Our goal is to nurture the physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth of each child within a respectful, creative, and caring atmosphere. Your toddler will delight in teaching you to get dirty while experiencing nature through crafts, activities, play centers, animal visitors, and guided Zoo excursions. We offer classes on Saturdays as well as during the week.
