The Little Lions is a relaxed playgroup open to all children aged 0-5. The numbers are limited to 10 children and our space is naturally lit to keep the sessions comfortable for our small visitors with any special educational needs or disabilities. 

The sessions feature unstructured, creative and sensory based play based on the Gallery’s collections and feature a variety of hands-on activities.

Siblings are very welcome too!
