Family Programs

Zoo Tots

Detroit Zoo - Zoo TotsOur Zoo Tots program provides an educational experience for one preschool-age child paired with one adult caregiver. The adult participant may be a parent, grandparent, babysitter or any other adult excited about sharing this special time at the Zoo! While our eight-week Zoo Tots I class for children 2-3 years old meets entirely indoors, our six-week Zoo Tots II class for children 3-4 years old has an outdoor component.

Both classes include activities and crafts designed to be completed with the assistance of the caregiver. Please follow the link to see class descriptions and register for an age-appropriate class.

Additional children and/or adults may not attend due to space constraints and program design, with the exception of a single newborn/infant being worn by an adult caregiver in a sling, wrap or other form of baby-wearing carrier.
