Ouseburn Parks is a brilliant location for Early Years visits and there are a number of activities designed with Nursery and Reception groups in mind.  Download the Early Years Education Programme (pdf, 195 KB).

Each workshop will last between 1 hour 30 minutes and 2 hours depending on your requirements. You can come for a half day (1 workshop) or whole day (2 workshops). One class at a time can take part in the workshops. If you have more than one class we can suggest self led activities for half the day.
