Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the program being held?
The Bowden Centre is located just off Caley Drive and is a 2 minute walk from the Visitor Centre and restaurant in the Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan. Park in the main car park and we'll have some signs to point you in the right direction!
Should my child wear old clothes?
My child is 4/5 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No, sorry. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the attention span and fine motor skills to enjoy the program content and length of the day. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
