Early Years school visit programme

Children playing with Autumn leaves in Kew Gardens

A visit to Kew supports and inspires learning across the Early Years Foundation Stage. 

From 23 February 2015 we are launching our exciting new programme with relevant topics and improved content linked to the new national curriculum.

This programme has been designed to excite and inspire young children, while providing a safe, creative and nuturing environment. All sessions use play, exploration, active learning, and celebrating achievement to stimulate young children’s learning and development.

All these sessions last 45 minutes.

Please note:

If your visit is before the 23 February please pick from our current programmes.

If your visit is after the 23 February please pick from our new programmes.
