Further information and pricing for schools and pre-schools
Sessions or workshops need to be an absolute minimum of one hour in length, with longer sessions than this (90 mins or longer) certainly being preferable in almost all cases to provide children / students with the opportunity to meet as many animals as possible! Many schools 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 the 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.
