  • Is the Mobile Learning Centre (aka van) always used?

    Our Mobile Learning Centres are iconic but not an essential part of the experience.

    Our preschool program is delivered in your centre; allowing your students to feel comfortable while enjoying the program. While the vans are used in most primary schools, our pop-up classrooms have become increasingly popular due to their flexibility. The learning experience can also be replicated in your classrooms or shared learning space at your school resulting in less disruption to your day to day activities (this is the only delivery option currently available in VIC and WA)

    After submitting a booking enquiry, our team will talk to you about the mode of delivery that will work best for you and your school.

  • How many sessions a day are facilitated?

    Depending on the length of the modules booked, we suggest between 2 and 4 sessions per day.

  • How long does each module take to run?

    The preschool and Kindergarten - Year 2 modules run for 60 minutes. The Year 3-6 modules run for 90 minutes.

  • Can you provide the educator’s Working With Children’s Check (WWCC) number?

    This information will be made available. The scheduled educator will also provide 100 point identity check when they arrive at the school.
