Frequently Asked Questions

How early do you arrive to set up?
Animals and Bugs – We have very little to set up, so only arrive 5min before our scheduled start time.
Rock Pool – With more equipment to bring in for this program, we arrive about 20min before our scheduled start time.

Can we have the incursion inside?
Animals and Bugs – Yes definitely. As we primarily hold and carry the animals, they are not running around making a mess on the floor.
Rock Pool – This program involves lots of water, so outside is best as we tip all the water out at the end. If outside in not available, please let us know so we can prepare for this.

Can we move the animals between the different rooms?
Animals and Bugs – Yes, the animals some in about 6 small sized boxes so it very easy to move between rooms. A helper to carry a couple of boxes is always appreciated.
Rock Pool – No, this program is best outside and bringing the children to us. There is a lot of equipment involved with this program, so moving between areas is very difficult.

No deposit is required to make a booking.
