Caterpillar Club

Caterpillar Club offers twice-monthly fall and spring semester-long programming for toddlers and preschoolers. 

Parents (or grandparents, aunts, uncles, or nannies) accompany their toddler or preschooler (up to age 5) as they share stories, play games, create crafts, and explore the natural world. Led by Kristen Zemaitis, Youth Education Program Director, Caterpillar Club is one of the few preschool adventures in Memphis that gets your little one discovering nature, hands-on, in the great OUTDOORS!
