Henny Penny Hatching Program
The Henny Penny Hatching program is led my experienced staff who deliver and set up an eleven day incubation program to various childcare and schools. It gives children the opportunity to watch eggs hatching in a specially designed incubator, and then observe the hatched chicks at play in a large, clear-sided brooding pen. The Henny Penny Hatching program is simple to run and it comes with clear operating instructions, 24-hour on-call service and detailed resources for children.
Our Aspire Children love getting to experience this process and are so excited when they can finally hold the little chicks.

We believe that it is important for children to connect with their local community. That’s why we take the children on excursions to explore their local environment and to connect with nature. Kinder children enjoy the Bush Kinder excursions. These excursions allow the children to interact with and explore the Australian native land. The Bush Kinder excursions extends the children’s involvement within the natural environment and helps them to stay connected to our local lands. On the excursions, the children learn about worm gardens, mini beasts, and the scents of the nature.
The Bush Kinder program plays a huge part in the children's readiness as they begin their transition journey to school. Children will be utilising what nature has provided as learning materials. They will have the opportunity to play in the rain, learn about the indigenous culture, balance fallen logs, get involved in dramatic play, find insects in the water, and draw with sticks on the ground. The opportunities for children to construct their learning are endless.
No, all extra-curricular programs, incursions and excursions are included in your daily fee.
Programs implemented at Aspire centres may vary. Programs are tailored to meet children’s individual, family, and community needs. Kindergarten programs are designed to complement the Prep curriculum of local primary schools to build school readiness and prepare children for the transition to Prep. We welcome family feedback and input when implementing extra-curricular programs at our centres to ensure they are the best fit for our community.
