The Mini Farmyard & Early Learning



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

Farmyard Objective:
To identify and describe animals commonly found in the farmyard and also to investigate and report the use of animals in our daily lives.


Our farm animals have basic needs, which include food & water. From piglets to turkeys, our friendly Farmyard animals showcase a variety of external features and the different stages of growth, how they change and have offspring similar to themselves.
Children can explore and observe the animals using their senses.
The way an animal moves does depend on a variety of factors, including their size and shape.
People use science in their everyday lives, which includes caring for their environment and living things.
We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. We ask thought provoking questions and have plenty of activity sheets available from our website you are welcome to download & print out prior to our visit.

What age group best suits the Mini Farmyard:

Preschool, Kindergarten, Child Care & Primary School Education from Foundation to Year 6. But!
The information & interaction can be enjoyed by all ages.

Little kids (as well as the grownups!) love the chance to cuddle and feed their favorite animals! We offer young children the chance to finally meet the stars of their favorite books and TV shows, whilst teaching them about the animals and why we need them in our lives
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our friendly farm animals! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom. Why not combine the farm with the Milking Demonstration or Bush Babies for the perfect educational experience? For programs on life cycles visit or Rabbit Rearing or Chicken Hatching Page.

Our farmyard is perfect for science and agriculture classes, allowing students to meet in person the animals they have been learning about. Our engaging approach to learning will ensure that it is a class to remember! Our staff can teach the students about the unique features of all the animals and how they are utilized in our daily lives. Why not combine the farm with the Milking Demonstration or Bush Babies for the perfect educational experience?
