Safari Squad programs feature an animal encounter, storybook reading, an arts and crafts project, and free-choice play stations, all focused on a special, new theme each month. Safari Squad programs are one Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday each month! Classes begin at 10:00 am and usually last an hour.
