Welcome to our NEW Conservation Tots sessions for you and your little one.

Calling mums, dads, grannies, grandads, families, and little tot minders! Bring your little tot to the zoo to play games, explore, and have messy fun!

Join us for our tailored sessions designed to encourage the development of your child and the bond with you and your little one.

Using the early years foundation stage framework and through the consultation of parents, we have developed a programme to help your toddler thrive.

We will be using the zoo and our animals to inspire our sessions, so be prepared to roar like a lion, stretch like a giraffe, snuffle like a hedgehog, and splash like a fish!

These fun sessions look to develop your little ones skills using songs, interactive games, dancing, and sensory play. We will crawl and walk our way through these exciting sessions with a new topic each week. There will be a small break in the middle of each session. A zoo membership is not required to attend, and more than one adult is very welcome.

Our Toddler Tots classes are most appropriate for toddlers and tots between 1-5 years old. The sessions are designed to help tots build their relationship with nature, and develop physical, social, expression, and communication skills.
