KTCF Educational Tours
Educational visits are suitable for children across the primary age range from Early Years through Key Stage 2. The visits are tailored to support learning goals around living things, animals and plants in the science curriculum. The resources of the “outdoor classroom” are used to enhance children’s learning through direct experience of life on the farm. Education officer, Chris Heath, leads the educational tours and has been teaching schools at the farm for over 20 years.
A visit at any time of year is a valuable experience and it’s an excellent place to study the changing seasons. Children can observe how trees, plants and animals are affected and react in autumn, winter, spring and summer.
Tours cater for up to 30 children and their accompanying adults. Tours last approximately one and a half hours. Tour start times: 10:30am and 1:30pm
The tour charge is £75 for up to 40 people (includes children and adults). Morning tours can stay to eat lunch in the farm’s classroom. There is an additional charge of £20 for the lunch room hire.
If you are a school or group planning to visit the farm you must book in advance. Call Chris Heath on 020 7916 5421 for all inquiries and bookings between 9 – 10AM or 3:30 – 5PM, Monday to Friday.
A fee of £50 is charged if bookings are cancelled with less than 7 days notice. Cancellation must be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
