Cub Club

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person Cub Club sessions are scheduled to return for Fall 2021 with modifications in place:

-All sessions are drop-off only.  

-Masks are required of all participants for the duration of the program.

-Class capacity is reduced to assist with social distancing efforts.  

-Please see your reminder email, or contact us, for the most current information, as COVID-19 parameters must remain fluid and will be adjusted as necessary based on guidance from the CDC, ISDH, and TCHD.

Developed specifically with early childhood learning foundations in mind, this hour long class gives little learners a chance to explore nature and animals in a safe, nurturing environment.  Get to know nature through play experiences, art, songs and stories, early science explorations, and of course - special animal friends!  Supervised outings to zoo exhibits that complement the lesson may also be included, weather permitting.  Each month holds a new lesson - attend one or enjoy them all!

Cub Club is designed with emerging independence in mind - however, due to COVID-19 restrictions this program is operating as drop-off only at this time.  Please note: children must be able to use the bathroom independently to attend (or contact us to discuss ADA special needs accommodations). This program is exclusively for children 4-5 years old (sorry, no exceptions.)

Each month features a new lesson - join us for one or attend them all!
