Nature-based play for little explorers:
Our Little Acorns sessions run every school holiday and feature a variety of seasonal activities for children to explore, discover and connect with the natural world. In these child-led experiences, our trained tutors will support and guide children but not direct them, allowing each child to lead their own learning while developing their curiosity for nature.

We have three special themed Little Acorn events for the summer holidays, all set in our beautiful Earth Lab gardens where we’ll be investigating the season, connecting with nature through summer time craft activities and taking on a spot of gardening.

Come along and enjoy the outdoor mud kitchen and water play areas and help harvest vegetables from the kitchen garden. And after, why not stay and enjoy a picnic at one of our benches and grab an ice cream and coffee from our Welcome Hub to make the most of the day.

For our Busy Bees event:
Explore the wonderful world of bees and discover why these tiny creatures are some of the most important insects in the world. Go on a pollination trail, learn the bee waggle dance and connect with nature with our busy bee crafts. We’ll finish the session around the fire pit for stories and honey cake.
