Nature Tots

Mini-explorers and their adults are invited to take part in fun outdoor activities at Longshaw.

  • Booking essential

Our monthly sessions have a nature related theme. We begin each session with play activities, followed by a story before we go out to explore the Longshaw Estate. Exploring makes you thirsty and hungry so we return to the centre for a drink and snack. Refueled, the children can then participate in some simple craft activities before heading off home.
