Wild Start


Wellington Zoo runs a toddlers’ playgroup with a wild difference.

Each week we explore a different part of the animal world and give you and your child a special, hands-on chance to connect with nature. The look on your toddler’s face as they feel a scaly lizard or while they watch an Otter eat its morning tea is something you’ll treasure.

Our Wild Start programme is designed by our Zoo Educators especially for kids aged 18 months - 4 years. Each session contains 45 minutes of interactive play based learning.

Time: 9.45am Fridays during Term 1 and 4

Cost: $10 per child, per session

Normal Zoo entry charges apply for accompanying adult

One accompanying adult free for Zoo Crew members

Limited spaces available, so save a space for you and your little one today.
