About early childhood education
We welcome Early Childhood Education (ECE) groups to book in for our educator-led Mini Gallery Explorers programme and/or to self-guide throughout the Gallery.
Mini Gallery Explorers
Our Mini Gallery Explorers programme provides tamariki with the opportunity to enjoy, engage with and creatively respond to art and architecture through lively kōrero, a scavenger hunt and creative activities.
The Mini Gallery Explorers programme includes:
- 45 minutes in the Gallery’s exhibition spaces exploring a range of artworks and the building
- 45 minutes in the Gallery’s Taupuni Mahi Studio making art in relation to the programme theme
- 20-minute kai break in the middle.
