There are many reasons why a membership is the ideal way to visit the Early Start Discovery Space. Members receive unlimited 12 months entry to the Discovery Space, so you can visit as often as you wish. This takes the pressure off having to see and do everything in your first visit – especially if your child wants to spend their entire time at just one experience.
