Notes

This information has been supplied by the Holland Park Ecology Centre and is presented in its original format:

Holland Park Ecology Centre is run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC). We are situated in an old stable within Holland Park.

The centre is not primarily a drop in or visitor centre, gearing as we do to pre-booked school groups. The office is staffed 9 - 5 Monday to Friday.

We offer schools (from anywhere, but generally London) the opportunity to study habitats. We have access to a wildlife area containing pond, wood and small meadow habitats. The majority of schools come to study Key Stage 1 and 2 topics.

We have some equipment for use by secondary schools.

We make a charge to all schools if they wish a member of ecology staff to assist running the session, currently this is 44 for a two hour session.

Schools within RBKC are not charged for each pupil, schools outside of RBKC are charged (currently) 2.25 per pupil to visit (prices are higher for secondary schools).

During all three half term holidays, Easter holiday and the summer holiday we run children's activities. These cover a diversity of topics from pond-dipping to art and craft. They are open to 5 - 10 year olds. Under 8's need to be accompanied by an adult. Pre-booking is essential. At present these activities cost 2.50 per child per session.

Sessions run from 10-noon and 2-4pm. Generally we run them 5 days a week during the summer, but they vary during the other holidays.
