Preschool at the Zoo Accepting Registrations

Posted Feb 19th, 2013 by Kandace York  Category: Arts & Entertainment


As the parent of a three- or four-year-old, you want a preschool that helps your son or daughter love learning, exploring and growing – all critical to setting a foundation for life-long educational success.

The Zoo’s preschool center, licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, offers a nature- and animal-based curriculum that blends traditional readiness learning with activities you won’t find anywhere else. The curriculum includes nature observation, animal discoveries, story time, fine and gross motor skill development, along with all the early learning content standards for the state of Ohio.

The year runs from September through mid-May. Three-year-olds meet two days each week, while four-year-olds meet three days each week; convenient morning or afternoon times are available for both age groups. The preschool’s teachers are certified, with small classes that give your child the one-on-one attention and encouragement so vital at this age.

To maintain these small class sizes, space is limited; enroll today! Learn more at toledozoo.org/preschool, or call 419.385.5721, ext. 2004, or emailpreschool@toledozoo.org.

The Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information and all the affordable fun at your Toledo Zoo, please visit toledozoo.org or call 419.385.4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 am to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.

The Toledo Zoo is committed to inspiring others to join in caring for animals and conserving the natural world. As part of that mission, The Toledo Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), a leader in global wildlife conservation. AZA member institutions are dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors and a better future for all living things.
