Childcare Groups

Feature Creatures brings Australia’s unique wildlife direct to your childcare centre, playgroup or kindergarten !

Our interactive educational Animal Shows run for one fun filled hour

 

The  show is presented in front of a beautifully painted back drop of the

Australian bush with most of our animals tucked away behind this to allow the element of surprise for the children

 

All of our animals are incredibly tame and used to direct human contact as we have had them all since they were babies themselves

 

The children will be constantly stimulated in a wide variety of ways to assist their learning and shows are delivered specifically for the target age group

 

We provide the opportunity for individual participation, group activities, some singing and plenty of time to pat, touch, hold and explore the animal’s and their unique behaviours within the comfort of the children's limits

 

We also set up two Interactive touch tables displaying a wide variety of invertebrates and animal artifacts to explore

 

Two experienced Zoo Keepers/presenters will present the show to

create a fun hands on, educational encounter for the children and carers alike

 

The stars of the day include a:

 

  • Blue Tongued Lizard

  • Shingleback LIzard

  • Bearded Dragons

  • Hermit Crabs

  • Eastern Longnecked turtle, Adult and a Juvenile 

  • Green Tree Frog and Magnificent Tree Frog

  • A variety of harmless Stick Insects

  • A Salt or Freshwater Crocodile juvenile

  • A small python and an extra large python, both incredibly tame

  • Touch tables displaying spiders, centipedes, scorpions and other invertebrates in locked containers

 

The children will experience:

 

  • watching a frog use his eyes to help him eat a meal

  • learn about the unique behaviour of these fascinating cold creatures

  • feel the strength of a crocodiles tail

  • help feed the lizards their lunch with a snack of mealworms

  • learn what each animal needs to do to survive in the wild

  • learn how to attract frogs and other native animals to a garden

  • pat and handle a wide variety of tame animals

 

Our Animal Shows are delivered based on the general age group and we can cater our show to any of the centres current teachings or activities

The Feature Creatures team will ensure the children have the best possible experience and all are welcome

 

We can also provide activity sheets to use with the children long after the presentation has finished

 

We are fully insured and have had our "Working With Childrens Checks"
