Little Squirrels is a hands-on nature club for children aged 2 and a half years and above during school term time every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning. The sessions are 1 and a half hours from 10.30am until 12 noon and are carefully designed to include activities and resources appropriate to the weather and the seasons.

Each week has a different theme and we start the session at the Visitor Centre. There is always a craft, healthy snack with a story, nature walk and outdoor play. During very cold and wet weather, little squirrels can be adapted to include indoor activity for the first half and then a period of outdoor play. Please ensure that both children and adult carer are appropriately dressed for the weather conditions and are happy to get mucky and wet! A change of clothing is also advisable.

We work in partnership with the parent carer and encourage their involvement in sharing their child’s nature experiences together.

Pay and display car parking charges are £3.50 per day or a £40 annual season ticket.


£36 per half term - 6 week block. Non refundable or transferable.
