Fall Class Topics

This fall we will be travelling around the world during our 6 week journey in Little Peeps! Each week we will focus on a different area of the world and the animals that live there. We will also learn about what makes those places unique and how the animals are adapted to live there.

September 29 & 30

Sumatra: This week we will learn all about the fascinating island of Sumatra! Home to tigers, orangutans and more; this endangered habitat has many unique creatures as inhabitants.

October 6 & 7

North America: Local animals will be the stars of this week’s class! We will learn all about some interesting animals that live around us here in California and all of North America, many of whom we may never even notice!

October 13 & 14

Himalayas: Some of our most popular animals, such as the snow leopards and red pandas, hail from the Himalayas! Come to Little Peeps this week to learn all about this chilly mountain habitat and how those animals survive there.

October 20 & 21

Australia: The Little Peeps will be leaping like wallabies and laughing like kookaburras this week! We will learn what makes Australia special and about the special animals who call this wonderful continent home!

Little Peeps – Summer

Each Little Peeps summer class is two hours long, 9:30 to 11:30 am, and designed for 3- to 5-year-olds with a caregiver. Little Peeps will gather around for story time and make a take-home craft. During the class, we will visit one of our animal ambassadors. Class themes are the same for the whole week and you register for one class per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.


We love Little Peeps! The staff are wonderful and my son learns and retains so much from every class. Meeting the animals is a very special experience for both my son and I. It was wonderful to see my son be able to learn and have fun in a safe environment - he loves participating!
