The Early Learning Program specifically focuses on children up to the age of 5 in recognition of the important role a museum environment can play in early childhood development. The new Centre for Learning and Discovery space in the museum provides a bright, lively and playful area for exploration through guided programs. These programs include:
A dynamic 1 hour weekly program for 4 weeks for young children and adults to explore, enjoy and learn about the museum together. This program is designed for pre-school children aged 3-5. Younger siblings and friends are also welcome.
PLEASE NOTE: Term 1 is now fully booked
