Tot Spot

Toddlers and their caregivers can play freely in this indoor and outdoor exhibit, open all day and designed exclusively for children under 42 inches tall! This exhibit is enclosed and can only be accessed through one entry way so little ones can safely explore. Learn more about all of Tot Spot’s offerings:

Indoor Tot Spot

This is a no-shoe, carpeted room featuring baby-sized mountains, tunnels, and waterfalls, perfect for crawlers! Toddlers and infants can dress up in animal costumes or test out the new sensory wall.

Outdoor Tot Spot

Toddlers can crawl through outdoor tunnels, direct their own woodland puppet show, or explore the tree-canopied grove. At the multi-level standing stream, children can paint with water, splash around, or fish for toy crabs and creatures.

Toddler Pop-Ups

Each day, we offer two Toddler Pop-Ups in Tot Spot. These drop-in programs are for toddlers and infants, as well as their caregivers, and feature activities like Wind Tunnel, Spray Bottle Painting, Grow Your Garden, Nature Potions, and more!
