This fall we will be learning all about habitats! Come learn about one, two, or join us all six weeks and become a habitat hotshot. We will learn about what these habitats look like, who lives there, and what makes those animals unique!

October 12th & 13th
Savannahs: The savannah is a unique habitat full of tall trees and tall giraffes! But who else lives on the savannah? Come to the first peeps class of the fall to find out!

October 19th & 20th
Swamps: Swamps are mucky, ooey and gooey and filled with many stinky creatures. Come to this class to learn about the exceptional animals that live in swamps.

October 26th & 27th
Deserts: Who can survive in a dry, hot desert? Do the animals that live there need water? Where do they go to cool down? We will answer all these questions and more!

November 2nd & 3rd
Forests: There are forests all over the world from here in California to across the world in China. In this class we will learn about creatures who live up high in the trees as well as ones who navigate the forest floor.

November 9th & 10th
Rainforests: In this class we will be learning about rainforests around the world. They are full of colorful birds and interesting reptiles that live within the layers of this habitat! Come learn about these awesome creatures with us!

November 16th & 17th
Ponds & Streams: We have ponds and streams all around us here in California but what animals live in them? In this class we will meet some local friends from river and pond habitats.

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!
