Early Years Foundation Stage

Why bring an Early Years group to the museum?

The museum provides an amazing place for your children to explore, play and learn actively. We offer workshops and bookable resources tailored to Early Years groups, focused on popular themes like dinosaurs and animals. The museum also provides a rich environment for development across most areas of the Early Years framework: particularly communication and language, literacy, understanding the world and expressive arts.  It is an environment which is fun, engaging and full of excitement as the children learn.
