September 5, 2013
School is back in session, and so is the ABQ BioPark's preschool program. Starting Sept. 10, BioPark Beginnings fosters a love for nature and curiosity about the world. Teacher Miss Ann brings 30 years of experience to classes and leads activities specifically designed for young children. Outdoor learning, games, crafts and music make each week fresh and fun.
"Our preschool programs offer an affordable and unique opportunity for families to discover local and exotic wildlife," said Kathryn Venzor, Education Curator. "Our theme this fall is Tropical America, and there will be so much to discover, including tropical butterflies, porcupine fish and spider monkeys!"
- Tuesdays (1-2:30 p.m.) or Wednesdays (9:30-11 a.m.) from Sept. 10 - Dec. 4
- Designed for ages 3-6 (children must be accompanied by an adult)
- Classes alternate between the Zoo, Aquarium and Garden.
