Family Programs

Science Program with Educator and Two Kids

The Palo Alto Junior Museum & Zoo Family Programs include “parent and me" preschool classes and afterschool programs for school-aged kids. 

Preschool Family Classes

Give your young scientist an amazing experience of exploration and discovery! We design our hands-on classes especially for inquisitive preschoolers, 3-5 years old. In our preschool classes, a parent or caregiver must attend with the child. Sorry, but unregistered siblings are not allowed in class.

Afterschool Family Classes

We also provide afterschool classes for elementary-aged children. We have classes at the Junior Museum & Zoo, Foothills Nature Preserve, and the Palo Alto Baylands Open Space Preserve.
