Pre-school Days

Key info...

This event is no longer running
 Set aside: a few hours to explore everything
 Who is it perfect for:  Ages 4 and under

These regular events, led by Life's friendly Science Explainers, provide a delightful opportunity for young children to enjoy and explore the science centre.


Each session offers a mix of classic activities, such as Piccolo Music workshops, mini-beast handling and a toddler bubble disco alongside new activities, so that every event is different. Access to our hands-on Young Explorers' Zone and special planetarium shows for little ones are also available.

Pre-school days are drop in events so you can arrive and leave when it's convenient for you, but please be aware that spaces in Piccolo Music Workshops are limited and do tend to get booked up quickly.

Please note, Pre-school day tickets will be available to buy on the door on the day of your visit.
