EcoDiscoverers school holiday programs for Children 5 - 9

Are you looking for something active, loaded with educational fun and a little bit different for the children to enjoy during school holidays? Then look no further than GeckoEd’s super popular EcoDiscoverers’ school holiday program.

A lifelong interest in the amazing Gold Coast environment could begin with an EcoDiscoverer adventure. Held in the sheltered Currumbin Estuary with the low cost of $10 per child per session, with small class sizes and available for children 5 – 9 years. Our programs are conducted by experienced Teachers with Blue cards in a safe, nurturing environment with lots of fun, games, stories and hands on activities. Parents may accompany their children to share in the wonderful experience that is, EcoDiscoverers.

Bookings are essential. These programs often sell out quickly so don’t delay in enrolling in your course and date of choice. Programs run from 9am – 11am (unless otherwise stated) and all children are required to bring a water bottle, morning tea, hat, sunscreen and a sense of adventure.

Mya & Dinah came to our Beautiful Bugs. They loved walking through Winders Park with their magnifying glasses trying to find different bugs on the trees, leaves and grass. They loved looking through our special bug eye magnifiers so they could see how an insect sees everything in their world.
