You will be met at the Earth Trust Centre by a member of the Learning Team. They will lead you to the space booked for your visit and introduce themselves and outline the day’s activities to everyone. There is then time for a toilet stop, snack and the necessary faffing to get everyone ready for getting outside.
These will depend on the type of visit you have booked and will be agreed beforehand. We are quite flexible so please talk to us at the start of the day if you have any requests that you would like to focus on. We pay close attention to the weather and conditions on our site and reserve the right to adapt activities as required. We endeavour to do this in consultation with you and to provide alternative activities relevant to your booking. Instruction for all equipment provided will be given and it must be used in the approved manner at all times.
Lunch lasts approximately half an hour and will be held at the Earth Trust Centre, either inside the Learning Barn or in an appropriate outside location around the Centre. During this time the class are the teacher’s responsibility but our team may suggest locations to visit and use, such as the Orchard and Wild Play Area.
We aim to finish our days at 2.30pm. However, we are aware that this does not always work with transport arrangements. Please advise us of your intended departure time and we will adjust the day to finish earlier or later accordingly.
