|Pre-Schools, Playgroups & Nurseries|
Farmer Gow’s is a wonderful venue for Pre-school, Playgroup or Nursery Trip.
The farm’s principle focus is the handling and feeding of farm animal species but there are also a range of activities which will keep young farmers interested and busy for the duration of your visit.
'Dear Anne - I just wanted to thank you for giving Lechlade Little Learners such a fun day out a couple of weeks ago when we visited Farmer Gow's. Personally I had thought that we would struggle to entertain 3 year olds for the time that your programme proposed but happily I was wrong and they all loved it. For me I thought that the meet the animal session was really well done. Thank you!' Best regards, Jane Hewlett
