Early Education and Pre-School

Zoo School enrollment for the 2014-15 school year beginning late August 2014 is at capacity for 1 to 3 year olds. However, there are limited spaces available for pre-K 4. To enroll, your child must turn 4 by September, 1, 2014.


Please provide your information for our waiting list by clicking HERE, and you will be contacted by someone once a space becomes available.

What can you expect when you are on the waiting list for Early Childhood Education:

  • Prospective parents are typically on the waiting list for an average of 18-24 months.
  • We will refer to the waiting list and contact interested families when space becomes available. Once you have added your name to the waiting list, there is no need to re-submit your information as the waiting list carries over from year to year.
  • Group tours are scheduled throughout the year; we will email families on the waiting list as updated group tour dates are determined.
  • In order to limit distractions in the classroom as students are learning, individual tours cannot be accommodated until a slot that fits your family’s interest becomes available.

For additional information contact the VP of Education at (813) 935-8552 ext. 209 or email.

“I used to go to this zoo as a child with my grandparents - I often think how amazed they would be to know that my child who they were never fortunate enough to meet, is now attending school here. I am so glad that we are able to be a part of and provide this opportunity for our child. It is a wonderful feeling every time I drop my child off at Zoo School, knowing how well cared for he is - that is priceless.”

“That it's a learning utopia. That if I had a hundred million dollars I would not know how to design a fantasy educational experience better than what we're getting at a reasonable rate. That it's a safe environment that fits my educational philosophies :)”
