Monday morning, Miss H and I had the opportunity to head to the Saint Louis Zoo to learn all about their early childhood programs with a few other local St. Louis Bloggers. I thought what a fun opportunity to learn about development opportunities for Miss H and to learn something new! So we put on our Zoo dress (Lilly, of course) and headed to see what all the fun was about!

We spent most of our time in the Wild Wonder Outpost Discovery Room. This room had it all! There was a baby area with lots of fun activities. Miss H and Jude had a fun time playing in there. They even have a sanitation system in place to make sure all toys are safe and clean as we know little kids love putting things in their mouths!Miss H thought she was too advanced for that area and wanted to venture into the big kid part. 

After playing for a while, we headed over to the classrooms to see what other activities they had in store. Miss H got to pet an owl. She thought that was super cool.
We headed back to the Discovery Room to see what the big kids can play with. Miss H found some fun wooden animals, puppets and dress up clothes!
Wrangled an alligator.
They had lots of fun big stuffed animals all over.
I spy the next Steve Irwin?
She wasn’t quite tall enough, but there was a fun water table. However, there was a drain next to the water table and that was a big hit!
She found a drawer of elk, antelope and bison and other fun animals!
Lots of learning going on! It’s amazing to watch her learn.
Miss H had so much fun – she was tuckered out after.
She had an absolute blast!
The cool thing about the Wild Wonder Outpost Discovery Room is that it’s open to the public! $3 for non members and $2 for members. Miss H got a membership for her birthday, so we’ll definitely come back when it’s warmer to play!

We’re not quite there yet – but the Zoo offers preschool too which would be super fun if we lived closer to the city. There are lots of fun classes and summer camps too. We’ll definitely look into one of the classes for Miss H and I to take later in the spring.
