The EcoTarium strives to foster a love and appreciation for science and nature in even our youngest guests. Our Early Learning programs offer preschoolers through age 5 the opportunity to explore and discover the world around them through guided play. Engaging their curiosity and enjoyment of the natural world builds a foundation for science learning throughout their lives.
Preschool Story Time Preschool Story Time: Join us every Wednesday from October - June for tales and tails, as we read an interactive storybook and meet one of our amazing ambassador animals. You'll also participate in hands-on activities and maybe even meet new friends. It's never too early to get hooked on science!
