Critter Club

Animal Fun

Fun stories. Great crafts. Hands-on animal biofacts and a special animal surprise…

It’s Critter Club, the favorite hang-out for 3-5-year-olds who love animals (is there any other kind?)

Join us on scheduled Thursdays and Fridays (same program each day) – see below for themes!
