All our 'Early Years' activities are aimed at 2 to 5 year olds and provide a fantastic introduction to the natural world. We aim to stimulate children’s natural curiosity about the world around them through a combination of sensory activities and natural play.
We have an engaging and exciting range of activities to increase children’s understanding of our whole environment. Our most popualr activities, pond dipping and minibeasting encourage a caring attitude towards wildlife and participation in conservation. We also offer a whole range of other creative and fun activities.
Strong emphasis is placed on gaining hands-on experience and knowledge of habitat and wildlife management by participating in practical tasks in a range of habitats on the reserve. These sessions provide a particularly positive and engaging learning experience for students who have special needs and learning difficulties.
We offer a range of tailor made opportunities to involve secondary school and undergraduate students through fieldwork and outdoor visits; practical conservation tasks; and school grounds/community projects. These experiences provide opportunities to develop knowledge and skills.
