Pack your sense of wonder for this Little Kids Day In event that will give your little learner the chance to enjoy a day of music, circus, science and FUN without the school groups!
In partnership with Playgroup Victoria, Scienceworks gets ready for a Grand Adventure, transforming into a vibrant and engaging space dedicated to kids 5 and under, their parents and carers. We’ll have unique play-based experiences and a huge range of activities, circus, music, storytelling and shows.
Boogie with the Funky Monkey Family band as they journey through the forest and around the world, explore circus tricks in the Dreaming Space, join in storytelling and music sessions, and make your own tambourine to take home!
