A Trip to the Zoo Packed Full of Fun Signals the End of Summer at Jolly Tots Antrim

Belfast Zoo one of Northern Ireland’s top attractions which opened in 1934 receives more than 300,000 visitors a year and is home to over 1,000 animals and more than 150 species.
Recently  Jolly Tots attended Belfast Zoo as part of a day trip and all the children had a great day with plenty to see including Barbary Lions, Red kangaroos, Spider Monkeys, Moloch Gibbons, Rothchild’s Giraffes, Asian Elephants and Malayan Sun Bears.

Helen Canning, Nursery Manager at Jolly Tots Antrim commented:

The children and staff had a really lovely day and despite rumours to the contrary we had no offers from the zoo to keep any of our own favourite  “Cheeky Little Monkeys”.  Whilst the weather was disappointing as it rained it didn’t dampen our spirits and the children had a thoroughly enjoyable day out. There was a lot of snoring on the bus home and not from any of the staff I hasten to add – perhaps the sweetest sound you can ever hear from the children after a day out!
