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 winter series running from the week of February 12th through the week of March 18th.  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.

2-3 Year Old Classes

Bring your little one and discover the entertaining world of birds and nature with Tracy Aviary staff. Each week we will explore a new theme, meet new friends (human and feathered alike), and dive into fun activities perfect for young learners!

What makes a bird a bird? In this series of Little Chicks, we’ll make friends with some incredible birds that will help us answer that question. As we learn what makes our feathered friends unique and different from us, we’ll discover that we actually have a lot in common with them, too!
