Little Chicks Classes

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

Each class is offered one day a week for six weeks. Spring classes will run the week of January 30th through the week of March 6th. Classes feature a special bird visitor, a fun craft or activity, a snack, a sing-along song, and an engaging story connecting with our age-appropriate themes. All classes are designed for a parent or guardian to attend and participate with their child.

Classes can be taken in the full series of six or registered for individually. Our goal is to help your child make new friends and develop curiosity and comfort around their amazing bird neighbors. Therefore, series participation is recommended. Participants registering for the full series of six classes will receive a discount.
