Early Education Programs

Play, learn and grow at the Central Florida Zoo.

Parent and Child Programs

It’s never too early to start learning about our planet and the diverse animal life found all around us. Kids ages 2 through 5, alongside a parent or caregiver, can experience a morning of sensory-rich play where they’ll get a chance to meet animals, make music, and much more.
