Zoo Sprouts Childcare Program at Sunset Zoo

Developing Youth through the Natural World

Since 2013, this unique, nature-based childcare program engages youth ages 2.5 to 5 years in a year-round, educational experience at Manhattan's Sunset Zoo. We believe that children develop best through personal connections with nature's building blocks and we leverage the Zoo's natural setting daily to connect and inspire our youngest of learners.

Check out this blog post for a great example of Zoo Sprouts unique learning environment!

We Are All About Being Messy 

If your child enjoys interacting with animals, climbing over logs, being outside, playing in water, squishing through mud, discovering bugs or just plain getting dirty... Zoo Sprouts nature-based childcare program might be the perfect fit!
