Kidspace is a positive learning space at the Australian Museum designed for 0 to 5 year olds. Curated activities and resources give little ones opportunities to bond as they explore nature and culture together. Kidspace encourages young children to take the lead in their learning as they experiment, observe, create, learn and grow through active play.
The four main themes of Kidspace are represented in interactive pods in which babies and toddlers are encouraged to discover a range of simple concepts.
Our humanity pod explores us as humans, from all over the world. Children will be introduced to the diverse day-to-day living, sharing, caring, and cultural practices of different communities through observations and play.
Our land pod explores our land environments, which offer homes for animals. Kids will learn about animals which live in the bush, rainforest, desert, on mountains and plains.
Our water pod explores our water environments and the animals which call it home. Young children will delve into the worlds of animals that live in the ocean, on the beach, in rivers and lakes.
Our past pod explores ancient animal life and land formations. Kids will learn about dinosaurs, rocks and minerals, fossils extinct Australian animals fossils and dinosaurs through observations and play.
Kidspace also caters for curious crawlers and their carers. A closed-off area keeps babies safe and provides a space for them to practise movement, explore their senses, and connect with the world around them.
