Play and More!

If you can’t make it to us, why not bring the curriculum alive in the comfort of your own school, with hands on interactive workshops delivered by our Education Team? Any session can be tailored to fit in with any curriculum, or we can create a session just for you based on your needs and requirements.
Another option if you can’t make it to the zoo, why not book a virtual workshop? The team offer online workshops (via Zoom or Microsoft Teams). Entertaining, interactive and educational sessions involving videos of our zoo animals and real-life animals on camera.
