Little Chicks Classes

Bring your little ones to Tracy Aviary's preschool classes to stretch their wings with our educators and birds.

Each class is offered one day a week for six weeks, with our fall series running from the week of September 24th through the week of November 5th.  Classes feature a special bird visitor, a fun craft or activity, a snack, a sing-along song, and an engaging story aligning with our age-appropriate themes.  We design all classes for participation by both the child and their parent or guardian.

You can register to take classes in the full series of six or individually. Our goal is to help your child make new friends, develop curiosity about birds, and become comfortable with the children (and birds!) around them. Therefore, we recommend participation in the full series.
