Sessions for trainee teachers and childcare students

We are able to provide specialised sessions for trainee teachers or students training to become childcare professionals; one of our experienced Education Officers will take you through one of our education sessions, relevant to the age of the children you are training to teach.

As part of the session you will meet up to three live animals, take part in group activities, understand the links with the national curriculum, and have the opportunity to ask questions. We hope that this session will help you understand how a visit to Bristol Zoo will provide:

  • A safe and welcoming venue
  • Educational stimulus for your group
  • An engaging fun day out
  • A wide range and scope of education sessions
  • Opportunities for learning around the Zoo
  • Ideas for planning a trip to the Zoo
