Curriculum Aligned Education

The SEA LIFE education program is a curriculum based program covering common themes across the Science and other curriculums to meet requirements and add to student's knowledge and learning. The program is designed for students from Prep to Year 12, but also covers early childhood children and we can cater for university students as well. 

The program is hands on, interactive and enquiry based, with opportunities for discussion, exploration, touch and feel as well as concluding and questioning.

Smartland Early Learning visits SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Excursion 🐬🐠🐡🐙
It’s safe to say the smarties had an amazing adventure whilst growing and learning at the same time.

The team at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast were amazing at accommodating our centre's learning and development excursion. Nothing was too much trouble, even with me dragging around a camera crew to capture all our little smarties' faces in awe of the beautiful creatures in their environments. SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is a world class interactive learning experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you from everyone at our family.
