Childcare Centres, Preschools & Kindergartens

Are the children fascinated with reptiles, birds or bugs?

Then let Animals of Oz bring a range of native Australian animals for the children to watch, touch, smell and appreciate.

We have two different interactive education incursions tailored to suit children of a young age.

Animals Galore

With fun being the key ingredient of the ‘Animals Galore’ program, the children will enjoy interacting and learning simple key messages about Australia’s wonderful and unique animals. The children will learn where the different animals live and what they like to eat.  They will also get to explore the different body shape of the different animals and how the move.

The children will soon discover that snakes are not slimy and that the Shingleback lizard only looks like it has heads! They will admire the big beak of a Kookaburra and sharp teeth of a crocodile. The children will also get to touch the prickles on the Central Bearded Dragons body which are actually soft!

Bugs Galore

The Animals of Oz ‘Bugs Galore’ education programs incorporate a range of native invertebrates. This includes millipedes, stick insects, litter bugs, giant snails, slugs, scorpions and spiders. The children will learn about the bugs, develop an appreciation and want to care for bugs. They will also get to interact with most of them, but not all!

The ‘Animals Galore’  and ‘Bugs Galore’ education programs are 1hr in duration and is best suited for group sizes of up to 35 children.
Don’t worry if you have more children, we can cater the program to suit the number and ages of children at your centre!
