Preschool Marine Incursion

Ever wondered if you could build a classroom under the sea? Well you dont have to! Our Marine Mania incursion will have your kindergarten students in the deep end of close encounter learning, not only seeing some of Melbourne’s most fascinating marine animals but feeling them too… well not the sharks of course.

Learn about the spines of a sea urchin, feel the texture of an 11 arm sea star, find out how puffer fish protect themselves and get face to face with a shark in this 1 hour engaging presentation that will leave your kindergarten students amazed at our very own backyard.

You will meet marine creatures that call our zoo home such as speedie, the 11 arm sea star, who is surprisingley fast! Carrot the freckled puffer fish who fills himself up with water when threatened, and you will even meet a port jackson shark named Michael, the puppy dogs of the ocean!

1 show at a time

For each marine incursion booked we have made the pledge to do something about the litter found in and around our local Port Phillip. For each Ocean Explorers incursion booked, we will personally pull up our sleeves, and pick up rubbish found around Port Phillip for 30 minutes. We care about our local environment so we are putting our snorkel were our mouth is!

Help us on our journey to clean Port Phillip Bay!

A terrific way to invest an hour

Thank you for delivering an informative and fun session at the Point Cook Community Centre today. The session was highly educational, interactive and the python photo with my daughter will deliver a story she can share with her classmates.

A really great program

Excellent interactive learning program for Kindergarten Children. Michael does an amazing job in making it fun and educational to my young group of children.
