Family Activities At The Parkridge Centre, Brueton Park, Solihull

by BecSorby (follow)
An educational nature centre with lots of activities for families with young children.

Solihull’s Brueton Park is home to the Parkridge Centre, an educational and information hub that offers a wide range of activities for families with young children. From nature-based programs for the youngest members of the family, to arts and crafts and summer parties, here’s a rundown of some of the awesome activities at the Parkridge Centre.

Nature Babies and Nature Tots

Nature Babies is a weekly activity session for children aged up to 2 years run on Monday mornings from 10am to 11:30am. Bookings are recommended and the sessions are £3.50 per child. The focus is on messy, indoor or outdoor play in a safe, supervised environment. It's also a good chance for parents and guardians have a chat over a cuppa.

Nature Tots is aimed at children aged between 2 and 4 years and sessions are held on Monday afternoons between 1:30pm and 3pm, Friday mornings between 10:30am and 12pm and Friday afternoon between 1:30pm and 3pm. The sessions are spent doing craft activities and playing games, with an aim of encouraging children to develop an early interest in wildlife. There are Tearooms at both sites where you can purchase refreshments after the Nature Tots session.

Wildlife Watch After School Club

The Wildlife Watch After School Club runs once a month after school, and focuses on getting outdoors to learn something new with each session. There is a different theme each month, including outdoor games and activities, pond adventures and how to build a survival shelter.

Family Events

The Parkridge Centre runs a number of family events, including Wildfest Parkridge, which involves crafts, pond dipping and games, and is held at the end of September. Some charges are involved.

School Holiday Activities

Why not spend half term exploring nature? Along with Nature Babies and Nature Tots, the Parkridge Centre offers half term activities for children of all ages including Wildlife Watch Workshops, Winter Woodland, Frosty Fairies and Wintery Wizards, plus Hedgehog and Creepy Creatures.

Birthday parties

The Parkridge Centre even offers birthday parties for children! Suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years, parties are offered every weekend at two time slots. A party for up to 20 children costs £90, with all proceeds going to charity. There are a number of party themes to choose from and catering is available from Café Partridge. Each party runs for 90 minutes and includes a dedicated host, who will lead children on some wild activities throughout the centre! Party bags and invitations are also available for an added cost.
