Animal Education in Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Based in Doncaster, we provide animal education workshops throughout the UK including Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, Manchester and Birmingham. We also offer children’s party packages.
At Meet a Creature, we offer primary school workshops that are designed to inspire children, develop a sense of awe and wonder and provide opportunities for them to learn about animals in a safe and controlled environment. Each workshop encourages young people to handle mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and mini-beasts with care and respect and allows them to ask and answer questions at an appropriate level.
Our animal workshops include; primary school workshops and simple hands-on sessions for pre-school children, nurseries, SEN schools and other organisations. This offers pupils the chance to experience a wide range of creatures and learn more about them.
Our amazing interactive workshops are also suitable for pupils with sensory, learning, or physical disabilities. We can provide a variety of enriching sensory experiences for adults and children with special needs. Our fantastic range of children’s ‘animal parties’ are also the ideal option for the perfect kid’s party with a twist. With our help it is sure to be an unforgettable and entertaining experience for children of all ages.
If your are considering how to use Pupil Premium to build self confidence in disadvantaged pupils, then our exciting workshops are the answer. Enabling children to touch and handle creatures from around the world is a great way to provide enrichment beyond the curriculum, and teachers often comment on the way pupils gain confidence from the experience.
Many schools book us to create motivation for learning, using our exciting and inspiring workshops as a reward for extra effort or high attendance. We are happy to stay on at the end of a school day so families can join in and take photos, providing a great way to increase parental support and engagement.
So ditch the school trip and let us save you money and staff time by bringing our ‘zoo’ to you!

Common questions answered…
How much does it cost?
We offer great value for money because we tailor our service to your exact requirements. Our prices start from just £179.00 and many schools choose us as an alternative to a school trip – our visit costs less than hiring transport and is much easier for you to organise.
Are your animals safe?
Our animals have been handled regularly and so are very relaxed around people. They have also been selected for their safety – we won’t bring venomous snakes or any animals which are likely to bite.
What happens if children are scared?
We offer every child the opportunity to handle the animals, however our Rangers are sympathetic to fears and phobias and no-one is ever pressurised into getting up close if they would rather watch from a distance.
