Homeschool Classes

Please check this page again in August for the fall schedule.

Zoo New England offers a variety of age-appropriate educational programming for home schooled students ages 6-11.

Classes are taught by Zoo educators and include hands-on activities, discussion, animal encounters and behind-the-scenes experiences. Each series includes progressive program topics focused on teaching students about animals and their interactions within their ecosystems. Students are encouraged to sign up for an entire series, as classes build off of previous topics.

Classes run from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and do not include Zoo Admission.
