Kindergarten Bee Incursion

Did you know 1/3 of Australia’s food production reliant on bee pollination? We all know bees for that sweet, sweet liquid gold, but do your kindergarten students know why bees are so important? Well, the first challenge is keeping them interested, and that’s where we come into it.

We can proudly say that we have developed the perfect program to have children and adults of any age truly fascinated, and engaging with our program as you have never seen before. Read our reviews below for first-hand experience.

Our bee incursions are the perfect conversation starter for preschool students to explore and learn about bees, pollination and why they are so important. In our incursion, students will learn about the different types of bees inside a hive and the jobs they have, they will learn in simple terms about pollination and how we can help save the bees.

Our beekeeping incursions are presented by director Michael Church, who is passionate about sustainable living. The aim of this show is to highlight how important not only bees are, but all pollinators and educating the public on habits we can change to become more sustainable households.

Book In Our Busy Bees

Professional, knowledgeable & passionate

Michael was professional, knowledgeable and passionate about educating students on looking after our environment. His content was age appropriate and he had a variety of bee specific props for us to view (especially the beehive)!

Huge success with the children!

We had been learning about how like humans, some mini beasts live in complex communities. The incursion was a huge success with the children being fully engaged. They all learned a lot and were fascinated to hear all about the different roles drones, workers and queen bees play in their colonies. All 7 teachers who attended the incursion had very positive things to say about the experience. Michael was able to speak at the students level and is an excellent communicator. I would recommend this program very highly.
