Introducing My World, our new Little Learners program for Term 4, celebrating discovery and exploration for young minds!
Join us on an enchanting journey designed for 2-5-year-olds. Led by our expert educators, this program blends self-discovery and museum exploration, with a focus on children's connections and contributions to the world.
From sustainability to understanding their place in the world around them, children will engage with themes that matter through exploration of museum objects and galleries, story, play, movement and hands-on activities.
This program aims to foster environmental care, and respect and build children's sense of identity.
Week 1 | 17 & 19 October
My Museum: Who are you? Explore your own identity and do a self-portrait. What is a museum? Learn about the Museum and what happens here, exploring the objects we have and the stories they tell. Finish the week with a sensory walk of the Museum.
Week 2 | 24 & 26 October
My Solar System: Look up, way up! We learn about our Solar System and visit the Origins gallery to consider our place in the universe.
