Friday Fledglings

A Weekly Outdoor Session for Under-5s

Friday mornings 10:00-11:30

A weekly outdoor learning session for pre-schoolers in the fantastic urban garden at the MERL

Discover the benefits of outdoor learning! Come and join in outdoor activities inspired by the themes and collections of the museum.  Enjoy outdoor play and explore the natural environment. Each session involves story-telling, craft activities and singing.

Friday Fledglings is run by Charlotte, a local teacher and Level 3 Forest Leader.

Children and adults must dress for the weather! (We have a small number of children’s waterproofs and wellies for you to borrow if necessary.)
