The Will Smith Zoo School will make you wish you were a kid again! With the opening of their new campus in January, KSAT writes that the Zoo School will become the “…largest nature-based preschool in the country.” Those lucky enough to attend the preschool will spend the majority of their day outside, and they’ll receive daily free visits to the zoo.

“We’re teaching them ways they can help conserve, help recycle, do all those things that can help nature and the animals in the environment. In the long run, we are teaching them to conserve our planet,” officials said in a press release. Fifty kids will start off the school’s new program, and eventually, the campus will hold 200 children. There are two-day, three-day and five-day programs available at about $350, $500, and $750 a month respectively.

On the Will Smith Zoo School website, they write that the student to teacher ratio is eight to one, and they only accept 3-5-year-olds, even though their lessons seem fit for all ages. They want to encourage curiosity when it comes to creatures and plants but also maintain respect for all living things.
