Insider tips for parents:

  • Food is energy.
    • Make sure to pack a lunch every day.
    • If your child has dietary needs, prepare your own snack so he/she can stay happy and healthy.
  • The animals are outside.
    • Prepare your child for an outdoor environment.
    • Consider appropriate outerwear and pack a water bottle!
    • Make sure you label your items with a name!
  • Accidents happen.
    • If you think that might be true, pack a change of clothes just in case.
  • Age is important.
    • Groups are based on ages so everyone can have a good time.
  • Leaving early or running late?
    • Let us know so we can be ready for you (404.624.5822).
