Preschool Pride

Our ever-popular Preschool Pride program is back by popular demand and growing into the school year! Preschool Pride classes are one hour programs for 3-4 year olds and their grownups. These classes feature stories, up-close animal encounters, and activities or crafts. Our goal is to foster little explorers' curiosity about the natural world and teach respect for animals. Preschool Pride classes are aligned with the Head Start Early Outcomes Framework, creating stimulating and foundational experiences for young, developing minds.
