We have taken our traditional hatchlings discovery program and have made it available online. All of our hatchlings classes are geared towards learners ages 18 months – 3 years of age

Each 30-minute program hosted online will focus on one animal and will have songs, crafts and activities. Parent support is needed for each lesson to be successful.We will have four animal-based lessons and one magic show.
