About the eBook

`Planning Educational Visits for the Early Years is full of advice on how to make visits enjoyable learning opportunities as well as great fun. This book is ideal for early years advisors, teachers and anyone planning educational visits for children aged three to seven′ - Practical Pre-School

`This book groups visits into five types of venue: museums, art galleries, the built environment, performing arts and zoos, aquariums and farms. For each there is a very brief rationale of why you should visit and details of a wide range of activities you can do before, during and after the visit. There are useful websites to help you find such amenities in your area. The activities will be familiar to experienced staff, but it is useful to have them all written down together′ - Early Years Update

′Even experienced practitioners will find many useful ideas. I especially liked the chapter ′The Built Environment′, with the idea of different ′trails′ to shape local outings′ - Nursery World

Do you want to plan exciting, creative or cultural visits, but don′t know where to start?

This step-by-step guide shows you how to get the best out of trips with your young children, whether you are heading off to the zoo, visiting a farm, exploring an art gallery, going to a museum or seeing a show.
