You can explore the animal world at the Zoo with your “little critter” through activities based on Arizona’s Early Learning Standards to develop motor, social, and cognitive skills. Each program includes animal ambassador encounters, crafts, and more!  Advance registration is required. 

This Month’s Topic: 1, 2, 3 in the Zoo

One alligator, two otters, three lions, so many animals in the zoo!

Zookeepers have to count every animal in the zoo every day. We’ll help them out as we tour the Zoo on our way to the Zoo’s classroom. Up close, hands-on encounters with some of the Zoo’s smaller LIVE animal ambassadors will give you and your child a chance to practice your counting as we compare the number of legs and toes throughout the animal world.


Designed for children ages 3-5 years

(One adult chaperone is required and is included in the program price. Class size is limited, only 2 adults per child may attend this program.)


$12 for Zoo Member children (discount shown in cart after log in)

$20 for Non-Member children

Our activities often encourage creativity, which for little ones can usually mean getting messy. To foster your Little Critter’s creativity, please have your participant wear clothes that you do not mind getting dirty.
