The event is open to all children and families currently enrolled in the Drake University Head Start and Early Head Start programs. Admission is free for each child enrolled in the program, and one adult to accompany them. All other family members receive a reduced admission rate. Last year, over 600 children and families participated in Head Start Day at the Zoo.
Volunteers are needed to help register families and distribute toys donated by Kohlâ€™s Stores. Volunteers also receive free admission to the Zoo. To volunteer for the event, please contact the Head Start Central Office at 515-271-3072.
