WE'RE WILD ABOUT SECONDARY SCHOOL EDUCATION!

The early educational development of a child is a crucial phase where they discover the world through play and hands on learning.

 

ZooLab workshops provide children with a rich variety of play activities and learning experiences in a safe, secure, and stimulating environment under the supervision and guidance of our expert ZooLab presenter. 

"We had a fantastic day yesterday with Eilidh. She was energetic and full of knowledge about each animal. She took time to answer questions and made the workshop as interactive as possible"
