Listed below are the Early Childhood programs currently offered by Melbourne Aquarium.
(Early childhood and 4-5 year olds)
The Watery Wonders program gives Early Childhood students the opportunity to explore the underwater world of Melbourne Aquarium in a safe indoor environment.
The session involves 45 minutes of play-based activities in our education room with one of our educators, where they are encouraged to role-play, create and imagine. They then embark on a guided tour around the Aquarium, including the opportunity to interact with live animals in our rockpool exhibit.
Groups are encouraged to arrive to the Aquarium 15 minutes early to ensure students have time to visit the bathroom before beginning the program.
Please note the following:
- The teacher-to-student free of charge ratio of 1:4 per group should be adhered to
- If additional adults are attending they will be able to enter the Aquarium at the discounted rate of $19.50 plus GST, as long as they are included in the group booking numbers and are checked in with the group
- We strongly recommend that if additional adults are attending that this does not exceed a 1:3 ratio due to OH&S regulations
