Virtual “Hatchlings” Education Program

**NEW** Virtual Hatchlings Program

We have taken our traditional hatchlings discovery program and have made it available online. All of our hatchlings classes are geared towards learners ages 2-5 years of age

Each 30 minute program hosted online will focus on one animal and will have songs, movement, and activities. Parent support is needed for each lesson to be successful.

Signing up for all six sessions is easy! Just click each session and add it to your cart. Or you can sign up for just one session!

Sessions are held once a week on Thursdays mornings at 10:00 am on ZOOM for 6 weeks. Each lesson will begin promptly on Thursday mornings at 10 am. Please plan to check in at least five minutes before the program.
