Nursery Schools

The zoo is such an exciting place for young children with so many animals to look at, to listen to and to smell!

It’s never too early for your pupils to start learning about the natural world and the animals and plants we share it with. The zoo is perfect to set our senses buzzing and where we start our fascination with our four-legged, two-legged, winged, scaled and finned friends!

We know it can be daunting bringing a group of very young children to the zoo, so the more familiar you and your group leaders are with the plan for your day the greater the enjoyment for everyone. And we’ve done our best to make things a little easier for you!

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:

Having a topic for your visit can really help, so we’ve put together a couple of ideas for you to do with your nursery pupils which we hope your children will enjoy.
