Interactive Cultural Educational Sessions for Children

Tiny Travels provides children in Devon with the opportunity to learn about different cultures in a fun, accessible, educational way with the mission to help promote understanding, reduce stereotypes and combat racism in the British countryside.

 

Our aim is for all children to grow up to respect and embrace people from all cultural backgrounds. We do this through interactive cultural educational sessions in nurseries, schools, libraries, family community events as well as providing anti-racism training to the adults helping to raise the next generation.

Tiny Travels offers children a fully immersive, fun opportunity to learn about cultures around the world!

Our Cultural Educational Sessions and Custom Made Round The World setups are entirely mobile meaning we come directly to you, saving time and costs.
