Theme-based days are seasonal and change from term to term. Educators provide an array of themed activities within the service.
These range from physical and craft activities to science experiments and cooking experiences.
Incursion days are also within the service, but special guests join the service and provide an immersive experience for the kids to enjoy.
Some favourite incursions have included Coles Healthy Kicks, Silent Disco Parties, Cultural and Dance Workshops, and Circus Skills among many others.
For our Excursion days, kids and Educators venture out of the school and to a variety of different venues. Kids love these exciting journeys and excursions offer epic activities like:
science and ninja parks
