About Us

The Toledo Zoo is kicking off an exciting Community Preschool Program the fall of 2018 that will be based in the new Carson Family Education center adjacent to the main Entry Plaza to the Zoo. The Zoo is forming partnerships with various preschool providers in the area interested in engaging their children in age appropriate STEM activities that focus on conservation, habitats, animals and animal care. Best of all – the program is FREE and preschools can come as often as they want.
