In Week 2 we’ll be building teepees from make-do materials, making bread from scratch, playing with clay and card games, and painting with watercolours in the garden!

In Week 3 we’ll be recycling plastic bottles into flowers, drawing with chalk, mucking around with clay, and playing some team and Halloween-themed games!

In Week 4 we’ll be painting in the garden again, learning to hula loop, playing with clay and card games, and baking some delicious cheese straws!

In Week 5 we’ll be playing costumes, learning the ancient Viking game of Cubb, making knights shields, painting outdoors, and weaving god’s eyes.

In Week 6 we’ll be baking ANZAC biscuits, making banners for the 15th Birthday, playing with makedo go-cart, drawing outside with chalk, and constructing a makedo castle!

Aeoncademy Opens a New ‘Creative Play’ Program from 3 – 6pm!

In response to our community’s growing need for child care and Yarralumla Primary School’s growing numbers, from Term 2 this year Aeoncademy will be introducing a new, Creative Play based program, running from 3 – 6pm Mon – Fri for $33 a session. We are turning 15 this year (Open Day party 24th November, all invited), and we have seen so many changes over the years in our host school, Yarralumla Primary School. From struggling to maintain numbers and nearly closing (several times) to becoming the thriving Italian bilingual school it is today, with three kindergarten classes this year!

In celebration of our ongoing role within this community our new Creative Play program will offer quality, choice based activities; featuring our popular Play Pods with loose construction parts, guided nature play and various arts and crafts. This program will start in Term 2 and depending on the enrolment day we have a number of vacancies available from the beginning of Term 2. Our world class Creative Catalyst Art, Vala Dramatic Adventures and – best of both worlds – Sparks programs will continue to be provided as opt in specialised classes between 4-5.30; after which children may join the Creative Play program until 6 pm at no extra cost. Our dedicated caterer will continue to provide all children with a healthy afternoon snack.

There is only one Aeoncademy and it is located at Yarralumla Primary School. We pride ourselves as being a unique, flexible and adaptable provider of creative programs and quality care for children and young people.
