I took my little one to the space themed toddler day at The Look Out Discovery Centre in Bracknell. The toddler day ran for two days on 18th and 19th January. We went on 19th January at 1.30pm, there were two families in front of us in the queue but otherwise we were straight in. The Look Out reported on their twitter account that the event was at full capacity at 11am and operated a 1 in 1 out system. When we arrived this was not an issue but The Look Out was busy but by 3pm it was much calmer.
We explored the exhibition floors first with the hot air balloon, giant piano, light and colour room and water area being a big hit. When things became a little quieter we painted a space themed picture and attended the last space themed story time of the day. The face painting was also proving popular. An exhibition we had not seen before at the Discovery Centre was the D.C.T Test and was fantastic, you created paths for a ball to travel down using pipes and you were able to re-arrange the paths the ball travelled down, it had children captivated for ages. There is a small ball pit and soft toy area for the younger children and babies. There is also a large construction area, which looks amazing but was so popular we just didn’t explore it on this occasion. We also had a snack at the cafe and bought a few plastic bugs at the shop for 30p each - bargain.
Toddler Day cost £7 for a toddler and adult. For the price you get to use the Discovery Centre with the additional activities. You have to pay £2 for 4 hours parking or £4 for 4 hours parking but you get £2 of your parking refunded with adult admission to The Look Out Discovery Centre. We will definitely go to the Look Out Discovery Centre again, maybe during the week or to another toddler day.
