Home Education at Magor Marsh

Jane and the ButterfliesLearning about Butterflies

Home Educating? Enjoy the outdoors? Looking for something different to do with your children? Then our Home Education Days could be the answer! There will be a warm welcome waiting for you and your family on our fun, easy going, Home Education Days.

Each year we run a series of days specifically for Home Educating Families, each one focussing on a different theme. These days have become a very popular part of the home educating calendar, so with limited places available early booking is essential.
Have a look at this video by Graham Horder to see the sort of things we get up to.
