The Chattanooga Zoo is offering a new and unique educational program, Kits and Cubs. Kits and Cubs is an early childhood learning program that is designed specifically for the youngest of animal
Children, ages 2-5 years old, will learn about animals all over the world through hands on, interactive learning. Each Kits and Cubs program is uniquely themed, from exploring Treetop Dwellers to going on a Sensory Safari, and encourages a child to explore the natural world and make connections with new animal friends. Each program includes activities, crafts, story time, and animal encounters which offers participants a chance to get up close and personal with some of the Zoo’s animal ambassadors, said officials.
“Implementing and offering this new early childhood educational program aligns directly with our zoo mission to educate our community, even the smallest of students," said Dardenelle Long, Chattanooga Zoo president and CEO. "We are excited to watch these tiny beginners learn, grow, and share connections with wildlife."
The Chattanooga Zoo is offering this program for the first time in two sessions: Spring (January–March) and Fall (August–October). The first program will be held on Wednesday. All programs are held on Wednesdays starting at 10:30 a.m. and run approximately one hour.
