Welcome to Peek-a-Zoo presented by PNC Grow Up Great!

This series of videos and activities for preschoolers and toddlers teaches important skills in a new Zoo way to help kids start school ready to learn.

Hi, Kids!

Do you like to sing, dance, read stories, count, play and have fun? What if you could do all of that with an animal twist?

Join our zoo friends Rachael, Fred, Kathleen, Katy and McKenzie as they introduce you to some wild animal ambassadors. Do you know how much Pelota the armadillo weighs? What color is a king snake? Can you play “Simon Says” with Tootsie the Cockatoo? Find out fascinating facts about these animals and many more, plus play games with us along the way.

Also, the next time you visit the Zoo, look for signs about special sneak peeks! Just scan the QR code with your smart phone for a video glimpse at some your favorite animals up close.

Hi, Grown-ups!

Our Peek-a-Zoo booklet is full of fun activities to help your child learn and grow while exploring the Zoo. It was designed for grown-ups and children to complete together.

Follow the map to learn cool animal facts while practicing some awesome skills. Then, take this booklet home for continued fun and learning!
