Discovery Days for Home Educators
Unfortunately our Discovery days have been postponed until further notice
We will update this page once we are able to re-open the Education office. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
Come and join one of our days out at the zoo for home educators.
There are a range of topics available each month throughout the year so you can discover something new in an exciting workshop with one of our experienced zoo Education Officers. You will be able to learn more at the informative talks that will be happening at different animal enclosures around the zoo.
The Discovery Days are available for home educators and their children to enjoy together. Currently they are open to children 5-11 years of age but sessions for children up to 16 years may be added later (additional cost will apply). Please let us know if you are interested in sessions for this older age range.
There are two workshop times to choose from - If you have children in different age ranges then choose the workshop you think will be most appropriate for your children.
Workshops will last for 45 minutes to an hour.
