Early Childhood Programs

 

Bring your early learner to the zoo for fun and education programs! 
Pre-registration is required for all programs.

Starting in January 2018, the Akron Zoo Education Department is going to be taking a hard look at our future educational program offerings. Unfortunately, that means we will not be offering certain Early Childhood programs in 2018. The Zoo School Wednesday, Story Safari, and Bedtime Tails classes will be retired for 2018 but we will continue to offer Early Childhood ZooCamp. Here at your Akron Zoo, we strive to offer you the best experience possible, and retiring these programs for 2018 will hopefully allow us to bring fresh ideas to our offerings in the future. Please let us know if you would like to be informed of future offerings at the Zoo or any of our other programs (like ZooCamp).

Story Safari

Feel free to investigate the zoo on your own after your program ends. For everyone's safety and enjoyment, unregistered adults and children may not attend (this includes siblings).
