2014-2015 Homeschool program schedule

Travel the World this year with the Toledo Zoo’s Homeschool program. This three-season program, starting in September and running through mid-May, will explore faraway places, learning about animals and animal habitats along the way.  It’s a fun way to explore conservation issues, experience live animals up close, express current information and engage students in group activities. Each month will explore a continent or unique region of the world.

The Toledo Zoo reserves the right to cancel class because of low enrollment. Refunds will be issued only in emergencies and only if notification is given before the class has been held.

Program guidelines

• A minimum of 8 students for each class is required. The Toledo Zoo reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. We will contact you one week prior to class if it is cancelled.
• Class size is limited to 15 students, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
• Classes begin promptly at scheduled times. Please respect this as it is extremely difficult to locate your child’s class on grounds or on a tour once the class has begun. Please make sure you leave enough time to travel to the Zoo and walk to your classroom. There will be no late admittance.
Registration is required. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
