Our preschool program is designed to spark curiosity and appreciation for the natural world in children ages 4 or 5 with their favorite grown-up. Each class includes art, independent playtime, group activities, story time, and live plant or animal encounters.
Cost: $15/child. For each child registered, one adult gets in free. $15/adult above that.
What is orange, hairy, and smart as a whip? Orangutans, of course! Join us as we visit some of Como Zoo’s most popular residents. Meet a primate zookeeper, then discover what orangutans eat, learn where they live, and watch what they can do with their long arms.
