Events, Field Trips

Children learn best through direct experiences. Kangaroo Kids organises opportunities for children to learn by seeing, feeling and doing. Through these experiences, children establish their understanding as well as acquire the social, intellectual and physical skills necessary for the development of meaningful concepts. Excursions are therefore vital components of any early education program. Kangaroo Kids organises field trips and in-house visits. The children may take a trip to the Aquarium, Florist Shop, Fire station or similar places or will be visited in the nursery by a dentist, a baker or airline pilot.
