Event description
Join our Roos toddler and parent class and help your family connect to nature right from the start.

About this event

Nurture your toddler’s lifelong love of animals and nature with us at Edinburgh Zoo today!

Based in our world-class exhibits, our fantastic wildlife garden and around the zoo, you and your toddler can connect and discover the world together through STEM adventures, stories and songs linked to animals from around the world.

Specially designed for 18 month - 4 year-olds, you can promote their early learning and STEM development and enjoy the zoo weekly over an eight week block. This includes free entry to the zoo and the chance to explore and socialise with other parents and carers after each session.

We're also offering a 10% discount for RZSS members and staff and a reduction for multiple children within the same family. If this applies to you, please contact us at education@rzss.org.uk for more information.

Purchasing one ticket enables one adult and one child (aged between 18 months to 4 years old on the first session date) access to eight 45 minute weekly sessions plus zoo entry after the event. If you would have specific individual needs or would like to enquire about additional adults attending with you, please contact us at education@rzss.org.uk.

Please note, Roos sessions will involve some travel around the zoo and we will be outside for some of the sessions. Pouches, Joeys and Roos are all designed with a flexible, no-pressure approach and so if you need to take time out of a session for any reason, you'll be able to jump back into the activities whenever you're ready.

One of our team will meet you 10 minutes before the start of each session at the Members Gate (which is in the top corner of the zoo car park).

New dates for Pouches, Joeys and Roos will be added to these event pages regularly and you can sign up to the waiting list for updates if an event is currently sold out.

Covid-19

Under current Covid-19 guidance that recognises the particular needs of babies and toddlers under 5, some baby and toddler group activities are permitted and the maximum number of adults who can attend outdoor activities is currently limited to 15 adults and unlimited under 5s from the local area. Indoor sessions will be available once restrictions are eased.

Some of the activities within Joeys and Roos sessions will be restricted to reduce risks of transmission in line with guidance.
