Backyard bugs is a program that lets children get up close and personal with some of our most common outdoor critters. We will teach the importance of each and every one of these furry, slimy and creepy looking bugs and the vital role they play in our ecosystem. From snails to spiders, and lots in-between.We bring a variety of insects frozen in time in clear Lucite for the children to examine up close, as well as some live bugs to observe and interact with.

Backyard bugs is the perfect program to educate children on how our everyday life effects these critters and just how much we need them, as much as some of us wish they weren’t there.
There is plenty to learn, observe and discover when the Backyard Bugs come to visit! If you have something you wish NOT to come and visit we can tailor the program to suit!

The Backyard Bugs and Early Learning


Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Biological Science and the Use & Influence of Science

Backyard Bugs can be grouped and classified on the basis of observable features. For example; Bugs that have wings compared to bugs with legs and ones that have mucas.

The Backyard Bugs encounter clearly demonstrates the diverse structural features of each creature and ways in which they adapt to help them survive in their environment.

Our Bug Handlers explain and discuss how the growth and survival of living things are effected by the physical conditions of their environment and the importance of wildlife conservation.
