'The staff were fantastic and the activities on the day enhanced the children's learning about the Rainforest topic. They enjoyed the indoor activities and the Rainforest walk and ephemeral Art gave them an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. A very enjoyable day, can't thank the staff at Wakehurst enough.'
