Melbourne’s best sustainability incursions for early childhood

Engaging children in environmental sustainability education at an early age can help them to become active global citizens in later life. Our interactive, Melbourne-based incursions are specially created for babies to 5 year olds. Activities are underpinned by the Early Years Learning Framework.

We support early childhood services in Melbourne and surrounds – preschools, kindergartens, play groups, vacation care and childcare centres. We also run early learning workshops at community events.

Consider booking a Little Sprouts incursion to time with an environmental awareness or sustainability celebration date! See our Australian Sustainability Calendar for inspiration.

Little Sprouts incursions are one of a kind – seamlessly blending scientific investigation with creative arts. This approach helps to cater for different learning styles of your children and creates truly fun and immersive experiences.

“Children’s favourite part of the incursion was taking part in science demonstrations. The interactivity of the incursion was great!” Educator, Coburg Children’s Centre
