Preschool Experience

Visitor Info

Welcome to Stardome

We want to encourage curious minds as early as possible. A trip to Stardome for preschoolers is not just fun – it also introduces kids to the basics of what’s in the night sky, and encourages independent thinking and exploration.

We’ve put together some school trip packages but our education sessions are customisable to your learning objectives so don’t hesitate to ask if you want something different.
