Park Explorers group for under 5s

Park Explorers is for 2-4 years olds and their parents/carers to learn about the natural world around them, with a different outdoor theme each week.

  • Booking advisable
  • Admission applies

Park Explorers explore the beautiful setting of Morden Hall Park through led activities, singing, crafts and stories. With trees, meadows and bubbling streams it's the perfect location for early years learning.

Sessions are on term time Monday mornings, £5.50 per participating child. Registration begins 15 minutes before each session.

Please note: sessions will not run on Mondays outside of school term times, including Easter, bank holidays, half terms and summer holidays.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

Suitability
Assistance dogs are welcome.
Meeting point
We meet in the Snuff Mill at Morden Hall Park and then head outdoors, no matter what the weather! So make sure you've got clothes on you're happy to get muddy in!
What to bring and wear
All you need to bring is yourself, but remember we do go outside, so make sure to dress for the weather with wellies and coats in rainy weather, and hats and sun cream when the sun is out.
Accessibility
Most of the session is held outdoors on flat terrain following paths around the park. Accessible toilets available.
Other
Under 2s are welcome to accompany siblings, but if they are also participating in activities a charge of £5.50 will be made for their own ticket. Term time only. Spaces are limited. Please pre-book via our website. Drop-ins accepted at registration time if there are places available. If you have pre-booked a space and are unable to attend, please let us know by calling 020 8545 6853. Unfortunately tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable unless the session is cancelled by the National Trust.
