Education is at the forefront of everything we do here at Cedars Nature Centre!

Whether you are primary school children learning about mini beasts, higher education students looking to learn about the role of modern zoos or a cub or brownie group looking to earn their Animal Care Badge.

We can help!


Onsite School Visits

The Zoo Tour (£10 per child)

The Zoo Tour is our most popular onsite school package!


Your class will join us in our outdoor classroom with one of our keepers meeting lots of our animals along the way!


Then it's on to the minibeast hunt, this takes part in the amazing Cedars Park! Which invertebrates will your school discover?

We finally finish with a meerkat feed through the open window of our meerkat enclosure!

The Zoo Tour lasts around 1 - 1.5 hours 


General School Visits £2.40 Per Person

This is a self led general visit to Cedars Nature Centre, you can enjoy your visit at your schools pace and join in with our public talks (please note these are public talks and not bespoke like our Zoo Tour).

Please let us know if you are looking to visit as a general visitor as due to the size of Cedars Nature Centre we can only book one school visit a day.



Cedars Nature Centre works with industry leaders and a QTLS industry specialist to create curriculum based sessions to suit a range of themes and age groups.


From relaxed nursery school visits to curriculum based school lectures. We provide animals that will fit all topics! Rainforests, habitats, diets and adaptations are curriculum staples and we can adapt the talks to any topic you are covering, no matter how unique!



Looking for something more in depth? We can also cater our presentations for secondary curriculum based topics such as evolution, classification and taxonomy, ecosystems and the environment.

Further Education 

We often work alongside colleges and university's. This includes bespoke presentations on creating a zoo (including a few of the animals found there) to more general animal lectures and career fairs.


Our keepers regularly work with children with Special Educational Needs throughout the year.

Each SEN group receives a bespoke presentation adapted to the groups needs with animals chosen accordingly.
