Zoo2U's core values are to Interact, Educate and Inspire with their fantastic array of wonderful animals. Therefore visiting schools and educating through their animal workshops is their true passion. Watch as Meerkats, Owls, Parrots, Chameleons, Kookaburras, Tortoises and more bring the curriculum to life! Pupils can experience this safe hands-on approach to the natural world in the comfort and security of their own classroom. Bringing exotic animals into your Primary school classroom is unique and will enhance many curriculum topics such as:

  • Food chains
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitats
  • Prey and predator
  • Adaptations
  • Geography
  • Art

If you’re looking for something specific, we would love to hear from you...the more creative the better! We have lots of experience and therefore do not require much notice to provide bespoke animal workshops.

A Zoo2U animal workshop offers young children at the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) a great animal encounter that can spark interest to last a lifetime! The Zoo2U team have created some fun and interactive animal workshop sessions for little people, where they have just enough exposure to the animals to wow them, whilst not overwhelming them too!

We would just like to say thank you very much for your visit yesterday. Both children and staff really enjoyed it and said to tell you that it was aimed at just the right level for the age of the children. We will be in touch next school year to re book.
Many thanks again.

Special Needs Schools

Zoo2U at Special Needs School

For children and adults with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), Zoo2U offer a fantastic opportunity for animal therapy sessions with our exotic animals. A really popular topic is ‘textures’ and with the great variety of reptiles, birds and mammals that can all be touched and stroked, Zoo2U can carry out a fur, feather and scales session.

Zoo2U have seen firsthand what an amazing effect animal’s have on these remarkable individuals. If you are lucky enough to work with these children or adults and have never experienced ‘animal therapy’ then please get in contact and see with your own eyes. It’s a very humbling experience.

Zoo2U are proud of the fantastic feedback they have received. To see just one great example of how the children can interact and be inspired see below:
