School Holiday Program
Collingwood Children’s Farm is a working community farm open year-round. With a commitment to life-long learning, the Farm’s Education Program extends beyond the school term and provides hands-on, outdoor educational activities through our school holiday bookings.
Our School Holiday Program offers a structured and guided Farmer for a Day option for children aged 8–14 years old who learn best by doing. Join the industry professionals and many helping hands that make Collingwood Children’s Farm a special place by putting your farmer hat on for the day. Go on a behind-the-scenes tour to see what it takes to run a community farm, then get involved by getting up close with some of our animals and picking up the tools to do farm work and a workshop!
Alternatively, learn at your leisure by discovering the Farm through our Self-guided Groups optionsuitable for children of all ages. Designed by our team of educators, self-guided bookings are supported by a map and pack of optional activities to introduce you to the Farm and get you on your way to exploring the green space. The Self-guided option is inspired by the educational and personal benefits our teams and visitors experience by interacting with their senses on walks through the open space and gardens onsite—asking questions, reflecting on the environment around us, and learning about plants and animals along the way.
Join us at the Farm! Simply pick your preferred School Holiday Program option from the descriptions below and book online.
