Learning and discovery are at the core of Kent Life. Our aim is to provide an educational and enjoyable experience to every child no matter what their age or ability. Our Education programme is designed to enhance sensory experiences and bring the past to life. We pride ourselves on organising a fantastic school visit for your class, that’s stress-free to you and tailor-made to your learning requirements. We work closely with teachers to ensure your visit runs like clockwork and children go home inspired and full of new discoveries and skills.

To lend parent helpers a hand, we send you a Parent Helper Guide with your booking confirmation. This booklet contains a self-guided tour around the site with questions to ask the children, plus the answers!

Our extensive list of additional Workshops and Demonstrations let children study topics more in-depth. They are all designed to be fun, hands-on and interactive, often involve costumed characters and can be adapted to all ages and abilities.

Monthly changing daily events, such as Tractor rides, Cuddle Corner, Feed the Sheep and many more are full of fun and are included with your admission. The Adventure Playground and the indoor Play Barn allow the children to let off steam and have a good run around. 

If you’d like to book a school visit or would like more information on our workshops and Theme Days, please email our Education Officers on cgeddes@kentlife.org.uk or call 01622 763936.
