Wriggly Worms and Creepy Crawlies, one-off incursion


Ladybug Academy’s one hour workshop introduces children to the world of insects in a fun and hands-on way. We encourage children to consider the link between looking after our Environment and the important role that insects play in our ecosystems to maintain a healthy, balanced world.

We explore the importance of earthworms in keeping vegetable gardens healthy and introduce children to microhabitats such as worm farms, which are a sustainable way of reducing the amount of fruit and vegetable scraps that end up in the rubbish cycle. We look at the life cycle of the Butterfly and learn why pollinating insects are a vital link in our Environment.

Our Educator will bring earthworms and fresh compost for the children to examine along with some caterpillars and chrysalis (seasonal) to admire. The workshop is full of fun, games and hands on experiences and builds knowledge about composting and recycling, while increasing awareness of practices that can be implemented in the home and school environment.

Pricing: $315 + GST for up to 35 children. Extra Children $9 + GST

10 Week Eco Bug Program 


Ladybug Academy's extended weekly Eco Bug program covers a broad range of sustainability areas, including:


  • The Three R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

  • Saving water

  • Looking after our oceans

  • Looking after our animal friends

  • Composting and creepy crawlies

  • Energy sources - the sun, wind and water

  • Keeping our earth cool 


Each week we focus on a new theme, engaging children through physical movement, games, dance, storytelling and multimedia tools to deepen awareness and appreciation of the beautiful world in which we all live. This program is purposefully designed to enrich the school curriculum through an immersion in sustainability issues that promote active community participation and social consciousness. 


We believe that working together towards a greener future starts in the home and classroom, where children and educators can be inspired to make a long-term difference to the health of our natural environment. 


Pricing: $250 + GST per session for up to 30 children ($2500 for the full 10 week course)
