We know it can be daunting bringing a group of very young children to the zoo and the better organised you are and the more familiar you and your group leaders are with the plan for your day the greater the enjoyment for everyone.
As a nursery teacher, we offer you a free pre-visit (see Pre-visit Information) and we have also put together a resource to help you plan your day
Nursery Schools at Chester Zoo
As suggested in the resource above, having a topic for your day can ensure a more structured and educational visit.
We have put together a couple of ideas for you to work through with your nursery pupils which we hope your children will find enjoyable and stimulate them to want to know more about the natural world.

Colour and Pattern for Nursery Schools
It’s never too early to get children excited about animals and the world around them and as a nursery school you qualify for our special educational prices if you are coming during term time and on a weekday.
