Jubilee encourages children’s appreciation of nature with its outdoor learning experiences that are set within 60 acres of gardens and woodland.

It is these activities that develop the children’s understanding of the world around them; teaching them about responsibility, vital safety skills and the life cycle.

A spokesperson for Jubilee, said: “We get so much pleasure from seeing how the farm enhances the learning and development of so many young lives.

“All of our children enjoy visiting the farm and spotting their favourite animal, whether it be the goats, donkeys, cows or sheep.

"As well as giving children practical skills and an important sense of responsibility, the farm also creates a real sense of wonder and enthusiasm about nature and the outside world. We hope that this stays with them long after they have left us."
