Early Years Visit

A visit to Seaton Jurassic is a perfect way to bring learning to life. We have designed a range of programmes to enable young children to learn through hands on, engaging, fun activities. If you have a particular theme or learning objective in mind please let us know and we will design a programme to meet your requirements. Example programmes can be found below:

Seaton Jurassic Experience

Living Things and Habitats

Fascinating Fossils

Survival

Discover the life story of Mary Anning and how her discoveries changed geology and science forever. Explore our garden as a palaeontologist and piece together our mysterious marine reptile.

Discover the essentials for survival in our garden, and find out how creatures were adapted to survive in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous eras.
