At Sydney Opera House we understand that the early years are a key time for a child’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. We are committed to giving children of all learning levels and styles the opportunity to get the most out of their Sydney Opera House experience.
Our free Creative Play programs enable active and engaged learning for children through exploration, play, creativity and imagination.
Our trained educators and facilitators will lead and support your children throughout the creative play process, encouraging them to participate, learn and develop their own creativity.
