Discovery Fun Day

The weekend is for play time with children! Make the most of a visit to Ocean Park’s unique environment and experience both a fun and an educational tour through our activities led by our experienced Native English educators <Learn more>. Through immersion in the English language, children (and parents!) will get to experience a fun-filled, play-based learning environment with a mixture of songs, story, games, art and sensory experiences themed around one of Ocean Park’s unique animals..

Each lesson will be followed by a guided visit to the day’s animal including information provided by our educators to consolidate the lessons’ learning.

Programme includes a photo opportunity as memento of the lesson.
