Eco Faerie kindy show is a one hour eco-education experience for children aged 3-5years. Combining stories, songs and dancing to gently weave the education themes of nature play, Australia wildlife, waste, composting and gardening.
The hour is broken down into two parts. The first 40 minute show is for all ages, even the toddlers can come in for a dance and play! The second part for 3-5 year olds is an earthy activity. Each child plants a seed in a compostable cup with organic soil. The centre may choose to grow the pots as a class project or send them home.
The incursion includes one Eco Faerie who will provide all materials for the activity. We are quite happy to accommodate everyone in the centre for the first section of the incursion however the activity is limited to 30 participants so that everyone gets the best experience possible.
Every kindy and pre-primary school we visit will receive a free Eco Faerie Album packed with original eco-educational songs that will keep the magic growing after your incursion.
We also encourage everyone to dress up and get involved- yes that means you teachers and carers, sprout your wings!
Eco Faerie school incursions are available for pre-primary and 1-6 year levels. We have three program currently available.
Nude your Food- Waste education with a focus on REDUCING school waste. The program will educate students and teachers on the complete story of waste. Once complete the teacher is ready to run a Nude your Food week where students are asked to work towards a zero waste lunch. Students are motivated to reduce their waste as a class project. If they can achieve a class goal, they will be rewarded as 'Resource Guardians.'
This program includes a waste education incursion plus an information pack for participating teachers to run the Nude your Food week. Once complete an Eco Faerie will come back to a school assembly to give the Resource Guardians a wooden Badge.
This program can be booked through Mindarie Regional Council if the school is in the region.
Water Guardians- Let's take a look at the water cycle and how we can see part of it's flow from your local area. We'll discuss local sites where children will have a relevant connection to the water cycle and understand their role in saving water at school and home. The program comes with a workbook for teachers to work through more lessons and activities. Once complete the students will graduate as Water Guardians with the option to have an Eco Faerie present wooden badges at a school assembly to the participating students.
