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 $504 ($75 per additional half-hour for large centres). Prices include GST.

We are based in Sydney. Travel fees may apply to areas outside of Sydney. Find out more on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

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.”

Having experienced a number of farm companies in the past, what we really liked about KindiFarm was that the children who were a little more timid were able to build up their own confidence and edge towards the animals at their own pace as the animals were inside the pen. Those that held back from petting the larger animals in the pen, came forward to feed the bottle of milk to the cow and the lambs. By the time the smaller animals were brought out for holding and petting, most of the children had overcome their fears and trepidation and were very keen to hold a chick, a duckling, a rabbit, a guinea pig. But even those couple who were still cautious were convinced and able to gently touch the feathers or fur with the encouragement and help of Farmer Renee and the teachers. So no-one missed out! Farmer Renee was unbelievably calm and patient with our children which was greatly appreciated. She arrived and set up without any hassles and the pack away seemed to be just as smooth. We will definitely be rebooking KindiFarm to come back next year!

What a great day the children had!! The farmer was friendly and able to adapt the day to suit the children as needed. Children loved being able sit down and hold an animal on their laps with a towel. And they all loved the bottle feeding, especially those children who didnt have the confidence to hold an animal. Animals were cute and child-friendly. Will be booking again next year for sure!

Everyone had a great time as the children patted, fed and cuddled lots of animals. The kindifarm team were excellent being very encouraging to timid children and allowing lots of time to interact with the animals. Our children loved the naughty pig too!
We would happily book the Kindifarm again.

Thank you again for visiting the Elanora Preschool. The children gain hands on experience of young farm animals in the safety and guidance of the kindi farm. Staff are very accommodating to the needs of our young children and look after the needs of their animals.

Thank You so much for another great experience. Farmer Kelly was absolutely fabulous with the children and showed great professionalism and understanding at all times. The animals were perfect for the group without being too big or overwhelming and the experiences of feeding and petting helped the children overcome their initial fears . Thank you also for making the birthday girl feel so special on the day. We look forwrd to seeing you again soon.
