KidZania is all about ‘doing’ and represents experiential learning at its very best. Every activity has been developed to cross-reference the new National Curriculum: Math, English, Science, Design and Technology, Computing and every subject are learned through the motivating medium of realistic role-play. However, the learning extends way beyond the curriculum and children will develop a wide range of essential skills and attributes including: team work, communication, entrepreneurship, digital literacy, emotional intelligence, global citizenship, digital literacy and resilience.
In KidZania our activities are run by 'Zupervisors'. These are adults who have been through an extensive training programme. All of our staff have been DBS checked.
Most activities last between 15 to 30 minutes, we anticipate a child being able to participate in between 5-6 activities during your 4-hour session.
Once inside KidZania, adults cannot participate in the role-playing activities except for the Theatre as the audience, Aviation Academy as passengers, A&E as patients, Stadium as spectators and tourists on the Tour Bus. The remaining activities only children are allowed inside the activity while teachers observe through the windows/doors. At no point will children be out of the sight of teachers during their KidZania experience.
If a child needs to visit the bathroom during an activity the Zupervisor (who is in charge of their children inside the activity) will provide directions to the nearest bathrooms. Unfortunately, the Zupervisor cannot wait until the child returns so they may miss some of the activity. Children below the age of 8 will have to be accompanied by their teacher.
Kids earn kidZos, the official currency of KidZania, with every job they perform. Recognised at every KidZania city throughout the world, kidZos are used to buy products and services in KidZania. The more kids work, the more they earn, and the more they can experience. Find out more.
In case of a fire, the Zupervisor of the activity will keep all children from their establishment together (including those queuing) and guide them to the assembly area. Fire Marshalls will be sweeping the city to guide visitors and staff to their nearest fire exit. This is part of a comprehensive evacuation procedure and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, we ask that you follow instructions from our members of staff.
Teachers/adults are required to stay on site at all times during a school visit.
Primary School 1 adult to 5 students.
Secondary School 1 adult to 10 students.

The Customer Services team will manage the process of reconciling items with visitors should they e-mail or call in.

Yes. Every teacher and student will be required to have their temperature taken on arrival to KidZania London using a contact free thermometer. Those displaying a temperature of 38 degrees or higher will not be admitted to the attraction. We therefore ask any guest who feels unwell or displays any symptoms of coronavirus not to visit the attraction.
Alongside the contact free temperature check, all teachers will be required to verbally answer three questions before being permitted entry to the attraction. These questions will ascertain if you or any member of your class have been in contact with anyone or are themselves displaying symptoms of coronavirus before we permit them entry to the city. If any member of your class should fail to disclose the information requested or provide unsatisfactory answers to the questions, we will deny entry to that individual.
We welcome and encourage all guests aged 11 and above to wear a face mask throughout their visit. In addition, all staff will be required to wear masks throughout the city.

Under franchise rules, the activities at KidZania London can only accommodate children up to the chronological age of 14.
