Further information and pricing for schools and pre-schools
Sessions or workshops will ideally be an absolute minimum of one hour in length wherever possible, with longer sessions than this (90+ mins) certainly being preferable in almost all cases to provide children / students with the opportunity to meet as many animals as possible! Many staff members now book a half day session for a single class (or a whole day visit between just two classes), as they realise the additional value of extra time with the animals to the children's understanding and overall experience.
The maximum number of children / students per session or workshop is 35 if any animal handling is to be offered, with larger numbers able to be catered for only when handling is not required and especially if sessions are to be planned which make full use of the video camera as described in more detail on the School Topics page.
I can be very flexible with regard to session lengths to allow for the organisation of the school day in individual schools. Workshops covering different topics can be combined in a full day booking, please ask for details.
Single 1-hour session: £150*
Full morning in school (3hrs): £250*
Full afternoon (2hrs):
(N.B. I will not require a break between sessions during half day visits)
Full day in school: Only £395*
* If travelling outside of the Swindon area fuel expenses will be charged at 40p/mile and for bookings in locations which involve a round trip of 40 miles or greater there will be an additional charge of £20 per 40 total miles travelled.
N.B. In some locations part-day bookings will not be available and at my busiest times single-hour visits will also not be available even in my local area - please ask for more information.
If I am visiting your school for a full day I am more than happy to stay on for a short time directly after the end of the school day, free of charge, to enable members of staff to meet the wonderful animals more closely if they would like to!
Alternatively I will be happy to discuss with you the possibility of inviting parents/carers in for a free after-school session, so that they have the opportunity to see what the children have experienced and been learning about during the day. Please enquire if this is of interest!
