Our Home Educators days are a chance for children to experience hands on learning in these amazing surroundings. Our Learning and Discovery Team specialise in running exciting and engaging workshops that get Children and adults involved! You'll be able to ask our team any questions about the workshop and the topic they're learning and the animals that they'll meet on safari.

Whether you're a small family or a home educator group, we'd love to welcome you to Knowsley Safari for one of our fabulous experiences.
