About early childhood education


We welcome early childhood education groups to self-guide throughout the Gallery, as we have no facilitated programmes at this stage for this age group.  

 When visiting as an early childhood education group, we recommend you explore some of the varied exhibitions in our Gallery spaces and use our Gallery Games to encourage fun, meaningful experiences

 Please note:

  • You must book with us first if you have a group of 10 or more ākonga for a self-guided tour, email education@aucklandartgallery.com to book and organise your trip.
  • To support the safety and enjoyment of all our visitors, we have a required adult-to-student ratio, and maximum numbers appropriate for small groups moving through the Gallery. See our Schools Self-Guide Checklist for a Successful Visit and our current COVID safety protocols to help you prepare for your visit.
  • For organised early childhood education groups, our sheltered amphitheatre can be used as an area to eat if the weather is appropriate. If the weather is poor, see Can I feed my young children in the Gallery? in our FAQ for where you can eat and drink onsite.
