The Will Smith Zoo School at the San Antonio Zoo is a fully completed demonstration site that uses all the Outdoor Learning Environments and Preventing Obesity by Design principles. When developing the site, the Zoo engaged the teachers, childcare providers, licensing, playground inspectors, architects and stakeholders to create rich Outdoor Learning Environments. Director and Assistant Director attended OLE! online training.

The Zoo purchased the property in 2015 and designed and built the school to open in January, 2018 and will add more classes in the fall of 2018 and 2019.

Here are a few links to the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the school.
