Programmes for nursery up to secondary school students

Due to our roadshows being based around the national curriculum some of our roadshows are more suited to students of different age groups. We’ll discuss what types of animals your students will be interested in. Depending on the age group of students your programme is meant for, we’ll offer you an educational programme at a reasonable price. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
