Childcare Centre, Kindergarten and Play Groups


Each child will have an engaging, hands-on experience of the sights, sounds, smells and touches of the farm. This supportive active environment encourages children’s engagement in learning. Kindifarm embraces an experience that relates to The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia: Belonging, Being and Becoming.

Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.

A typical visit is 2 hours duration, and consists of 2 x one hour sessions. Dividing children into groups of up to 30 children allows each child individual time with all the animals.

Each child will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet the animals, by walking around the pen with pellets  to feed them.
  • Bottle-feed our calf. lambs and kids.
  • Learn about the smaller animals, by sitting in circles to hold and pat chicks, rabbits and ducks.
  • Watch our piglet eat like a pig, and pat the piglet’s skin to feel the comparison to other animals.
  • Watch a sheep shearing demonstration, hold freshly shorn wool, smell its odour and feel the lanolin. We’ll even leave a bag of wool for the whole class to use in art and craft.
  • Listen to our farmer do a stock whip cracking demonstration to show how we muster sheep and cows.

We are very happy to tailor our program to suit your centre so please let us know if you have any special requirements.

Pricing:

Minimum visit cost is $490 ($150 per additional hour for large centres). Ask about our special discounts for large centres. Prices include GST.

We are based in Sydney. Travel fees may apply to areas outside of Sydney. Please read our Terms and Conditions

Christ Church St Ives Preschool: Kindifarm provides a fantastic educational day for the children at our preschool. The staff take the time to make sure every child is involved and learning.”

Reema and all the Apple Cottage  Team:Your staff are friendly, professional, patient and so well trained with what they do. We had such lovely and positive feedback from the families. There is nothing I would improve about what you provide as it is of such high quality. We hope to see you again in the new year and thank you all for the wonderful and professional experience. The staff are fabulous and a pleasure!”

Holroyd City Council, Family Day Care: “The children really enjoyed the Kindifarm visit and already we have had requests from our educators to have it again next year. The balance of activities was fabulous and really suited our family day care scheme. They loved being able to feed the animals, touch and play with the smaller animals and learn a little about them. It was wonderful that there was so much variety in types and sizes of animals.  The sheep shearing and the whip demonstration were also great. Sarah was well organised and nothing was a problem. She was very calm and encouraging with the children. We would definitely be recommending Kindifarm to other services.”

Veronica was amazing with the children and animals. She was on her own with what appeared to be a million animals and handled herself extremely well. Having over 90 children coming to see the animals she handled herself very well. Everything about kindifarm is professional and child friendly.

KindiFarm made an appearance at all three of our Early Learning Centres. All three age groups (Nursery, Toddlers, and Preschoolers) thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of different animals, with side-shows of sheep sheering and whip-cracking. This allowed us to implement sustainable practices within our service and encouraged the children to extend on their knowledge regarding how to be environmentally responsible and care for other living creatures.

The children and eductors at Kids@Play Croydon Park LOVED having Kindi Farm visit our centre. The children scaffolded their learning as they interacted with the animals and watched the show. Thank you so much for an awesome incursion! We will definitely be using your services in the future 🙂

A huge thank you to Maddy and the Kindifarm team. Our children got so much out of this wonderful hands on experience and were talking about it for days afterwards. It was wonderful that the feeding, holding and educational side was inclusive of all age groups. Despite the hot day Maddy did a wonderful job of keeping all of the children and animals cool and calm. It was engaging and exciting for all involved including the staff, families and children.
Thanks again, we would have no hesitations recommending this service to others.

A big thankyou to Tiffany for a wonderful job. The children all loved you very much and the staff all were so pleased with the way you interacted with the children in all ages.
Our families and children had a wonderful experience seeing and touching the animals, but they really enjoyed the feeding of the lamb and the kid their bottles of milk.
All the children would love to see maybe next time a little piglet, would be a nice edition to your kindi farm.
Once again thank you for a wonderful experience.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone and cant wait to have you out again.

Lauren visited us with her wonderful animals last Thursday for 80 of our children. Lauren was great with the children ensuring that she meet the varying needs and interests of our children of 0 - 5 years old. Lauren's professionalism was not only showed during children's interactions with the animals, she also ensures that our garden was cleaned up after the farm visit. There were a great variety of animals which were well cared for. Besides ensuring that there were sufficient number of animals to interact with the children, Lauren paid great attention to details and placed the little animals (chicks and bunnies) in a little sack for the children to hold. Overall, a great experience for our children and staff, we would love to have them back again!

Farmer Sian visited us yesterday and the children loved it!! She was so great with the children and got down on their level and spoke to them so that they understood. She made sure everyone felt comfortable with the animals and even our children that were a little tentative held and patted a number of animals. We loved Kindifarm and can't wait until they visit us again at All Saints Grammar!

We were very happy with our 2 Kindifarm visits. Farmer James was wonderful. He was polite, on time, very friendly and lovely and encouraging with the children.
We always look forward to our visits each year.
