Early Years Foundation Stage

Wonder at Wildlife

With over 250 species to see, a narrow-gauge railwayan exciting playground and over 160 acres of beautiful parkland we offer the perfect learning environment.

There is plenty to fill your day with a visit to the Park. We have an exciting range of talks for younger visitors from 3 years and older. All our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) talks take place inside.

Educational Talks

All of our talks are around 30 minutes. During peak times talks cost £20 per talk (with a maximum of 20 students/pupils per talk), during off peak times the first talk is FREE for each group.

Please note that our talks get booked up a long way in advance so we strongly suggest booking early to avoid disappointment.

Please see below the educational talks we would recommend for EYFS each with further information about the talk and how they can help link to the EYFS Framework.


We have a minimum supervision ratio of one adult to 10 pupils/students for all groups aged 16 and under as they MUST remain with an adult at all times. This is to ensure that both your group and other visitors to the park get the most from their day.

If you have pupils, or staff, with season tickets they can use these to get into the Park free with your group. The pupils using season tickets for admission will count towards your adult/pupil free place ratio. Pre-school children under 3 are admitted free of charge but they will not count towards your free adult ratio.
