Science for Preschoolers brings the wonderful world of science to children aged 3 to 6 in a engaging and educational way. Our science incursions are specifically tailored for preschool aged children and are perfect for celebrating National Science Week (15th - 23rd August, 2020) or at any time during the year when science is being explored.
We can provide single incursions or we can even bring our weekly science classes to your early learning centre! One of our missions is to promote the learning of science at early learning centres and to demonstrate how teaching science can be extremely rewarding.
Our classes can help young children develop a range of life skills such as:
- logical thinking and reasoning
- planning and predicting
- problem solving
- listening and observing
Our incursions are 45-60 minutes in duration and commence with an interactive presentation on the core theme of what is science and how everyone can be a scientist. The theory is then applied through fun, hands-on science experiments / activities that focus on the three main natural sciences: Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Earth Sciences. The children will experience both a group and individual science experiment. The incursion is then concluded with a science themed story to summarise the concepts learnt.
At the end of the session, a report is given to parents / guardians that summarises the learning areas and objectives of the incursion in order to promote further discussions at home such that learning does not end when the incursion does. Children are also able to take home one of their science experiments to show their parents!
To conduct an incursion, a minimum of 20 children or the equivalent cost of 20 children is required. The incursion includes an instructor and all materials required to perform the science experiments / activities. The cost is $15.00 per child for a 45-60 minute incursion. Please note that our incursion is designed to be an educational session instead of purely being a 'show' or 'performance'.
To conduct our term program, a minimum of 20 children or the equivalent cost of 20 children is required. The program includes an instructor and all materials required to perform the science experiments / activities The cost is $10.00 per child per class (30-45 minutes in duration) with every term running for a total of 7 classes.
All our instructors have a current working with children licence and extensive experience working with preschoolers.
