Early Childhood Education Programs

Early childhood education programs at Roger Williams Park Zoo offer a fun, age-appropriate way for parents and their children ages three to five years to discover the natural world together.   Programs are offered from September through May and themes change monthly, so there’s always a new and exciting experience at every class!

Our programs are a great way for little ones to discover the natural world.
