We’re inspiring your little scientiststo ask the big questions about the world around them at this year’s Toddlerfest  

Work together to create things that fly at our nature-based origami station, contribute to our shimmering community spider web, intrigue the senses and ignite curiosity in nature with our sensory crawl zone, and join our favourite tree and her animal puppet friends on the big stage for a special birthday celebration. 

Early STEM education is an important part of a child’s development and Toddlerfest is the perfect way to introduce your tiny scientist to the world of Science! 

Designed for children aged 0-5 and their families, this event aims to encourage science discovery through problem solving, imagination and creativity.
