What an amazing experience for your child to be able to learn in this type of  environment surrounded by nature and exotic animals all incorporated into their daily curriculum.  The class size is limited with the Zoo School having had up to 18 children with 2 staff members to supervise. The staff are with in sight and sound of the children at all times.
