Twycross Zoo - Follow Your Heart

Opening Times: 10am - 6pm

Charity Heart

Twycross Zoo is a registered charity (number 501841) which exists to support conservation, education and research.

Early Years

Here at Twycross Zoo we believe that our connection with nature should be explored from an early age and that engaging with animals can be a powerful experience for young children. This is why we have carefully developed pre-school sessions based on the early years foundation stage (EYFS) statutory framework, providing a solid foundation and equal learning opportunities for all. These 30 minute sessions can accommodate up to 20 children and concentrate on a hands on approach, using observational skills which involve all the senses in a safe and nurturing environment. All sessions involve a chance to meet animal(s), increasing the learning potential and enabling children to engage in new experiences

Animal Differences

This interactive session is a fantastic way to introduce early years to the difference between insects, mammals and reptiles. Children will be encouraged to experience different textures, colours, and patterns and begin exploring the amazing world of animals.

No Phones in the Forest

This session is a story based session that teaches children how animals communicate in the wild. Children will learn how animals use their senses to find their families.

Our EYFS sessions can accommodate up to 20 children at a time. These sessions are suitable for infants between the age of 3 and 5.
