This is a weekly group for children aged 2.5-5 years. Sessions are 1 hour and include a snack for the children. Tea and coffee is provided for the adults. Block bookings are available on a term by term basis, or by weekly tickets.
The sessions are a great opportunity for children to visit a working farm. Our facility enables children to experience being on a farm in a safe and controlled environment. Each week the children will learn about what has been happening on the farm and make a related craft in our cart shed. They will get to see and feed the animals in the animal paddocks and have time to play in the enclosed play paddock and undercover play area. During each term the children will have fun learning about different animals, farm machinery (including live demonstrations), farm wildlife and the life of a farmer. These sessions aim to encourage children to think about and understand where their food comes from in a fun, interactive and informal way.
The benefits of seeing the farm on a weekly basis gives the children a real insight into the farming seasons and where their food comes from. We aim to provide the children with what they want so if there is something your child would really like to see, please ask and we will try our best to incorporate it into our programme.
