Pre-school days provide the perfect opportunity for you and your little ones to try new things, make new friends and have lots of hands-on fun. They are ideal for newborns, babies, toddlers and pre-school children.

Enjoy exciting activities that have been developed with children’s physical, cognitive and social skills in mind.

Regular highlights include age-appropriate hands-on play in the Making Studios, a balancing path for adventurous walkers and immersive plus child-friendly shows in the planetarium and on our huge digital globe – the Sphere. 

Each session is different, so there’ll be new things to try each time you visit – from storytellers and crafters to artists and musicians. At this event, your little ones can enjoy bubble painting, a colour sorting activity or be a mini scientist having fun with pipettes, bicarb, vinegar and food colouring!
