We Hear You, Duluth!

By Leah Budnik, Preschool Director

Dear Families,

I have wonderful news. The Zoo School is listening closely to feedback from our community. Our community needs child care! Specifically, families in our community need full day, full week child care, year round. The Zoo School is adapting to meet these needs.

We have decided to create our own schedule for the school year with minimal time off for holidays and breaks. We’re going to take a break during that last week of December and on a handful of holidays, but for the rest of the school year, we’re open!

There’s more: we’re open for summer session! Summer session will be 10 weeks of preschool for 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds (already potty trained, but not yet in Kindergarten). It will have the same hours and follow the same curricular structure as the school year.  We will learn through play and exploration in nature.

We hope that these changes will help us to better serve the families of our beautiful community.


Leah, Preschool Director
