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 Do you want to plan exciting, creative or cultural visits, but don't know where to start?
