Beginner Buddies is a ‘Mommy & Me’ program that allows young children the chance to play, learn, and interact with animals. This program is designed for children ages 1-5. The program includes crafts, games, access to our playground and nature trails, and exploration stations, as well as interactions with our animal ambassadors. This program is self led, and allows you to interact with the different stations at your leisure. This is a great way for parents, grandparents, or guardians to spend some extra time with their child while exploring and having fun without having to worry about cleaning up the mess! 

The themes for each month can be found below; the crafts and exploration stations will go with the theme of the week.

Each class costs $8 per child

The first adult accompanying the child is free, each additional adult is $10

Classes are typically offered on the second Monday or Tuesday of the month from 9:30-11:30am

A second class will be offered later in the month on either Monday or Tuesday if the first class registration is full.
