Early learning framework
Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Our passionate and knowledgeable Wildlife Ambassadors will captivate children and teachers alike during our one hour educational and interactive programs, which are fully focused on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
We aim to create a positive shift in how kids relate to, care about and treat wildlife. In short, we want to help shape a generation of better humans. And with a Diamond Python, a Frilled Neck Lizard and a Saltwater Crocodile in our crew, we think we’ll have just the guests to make a lasting impression…
