Ladybug Academy's Travel Bug program takes children on an around-the-world journey to explore many of the exciting cultures that our world has to offer. Celebrating our differences is key to promoting diversity and when we meet a funny martian from Planet Dupe our journey takes a sudden turn on a hunt for buried treasure that leads us to many different and exciting new places.
Our journey takes us to Asia, Africa, the Middle East and back to Australia, meeting many different faces around the world. As we meet our new panda, camel and elephant friends, we explore various housing, traditional dress and languages, learning how to say hello in different countries.
We use digital narrative, dance and interactive activities to engage children in our storytelling experience. Our original songs 'Hello Friend' and 'Different Places' inspire children to embrace a world of variety while recognising that even though we are different, we all want to live in a peaceful and connected way.
At Ladybug Academy, our belief is that developing a deep appreciation of cultural diversity is key to creating a more positive and peaceful global community. We aim to inspire others to share this vision, along with the message that inspired change starts in our families, classrooms and local communities.
All of our presenters are fully trained, passionate Travel Bugs, fully insured with current Working with Children checks.
