Thanks in part to a grant from Nature Play Grants Program and also to Yurbay projects, Aeon Academy is set to have our very own bush tucker garden. Aeon has been eager to introduce a native plant garden for some time now - we love nature play! Aeon Academy has always held sustainability and environmentally responsible behaviour to be an essential part of our philosophy. We embed sustainability in the day-to day activities and programming of our Service. We believe in empowering children as active global citizens to learn about and act on our shared responsibilities to the environment. [...]

As Term 2 draws to a close, we bid farewell to a familiar face. Stef has assisted across our spectrum of programs, lead Vala and Cornucopia classes, supported Saadia behind the scenes in the office, and acted as Sheriff. She will be returning to study Ecology and Human Geography full time from the middle of the year. "I'll very much miss every one of the families I have had the privilege to meet while working at Aeon," she says, adding that she hopes to continue to attend Open Days and other Aeon events. Ciao, Stef! [...]
We at Aeon Academy would like to extend a very warm thank you to our families and community supporting us during these infamously strange times. As Canberra and the world at large has been rocked by crisis after crisis, Aeon Academy has been striving to provide a nurturing and creative environment for all children. But we wouldn't have been able to do it alone! We love the ways our community expresses support for us, whether by making a tax-deductible donation, celebrating success with us on social media, or joining us for special events. One of our families has even started [...]
Due to the changeable conditions created by the recent Coronavirus outbreak (particularly those affecting government funding decisions, fees, and the childcare subsidy), we will be charging the Specialised Program surcharge ($103) only for Vala and Creative Catalyst bookings until further notice. Once the childcare subsidy is reinstated we will contact families regarding the gap fee applied to their booking. Further, as we were unable to host an Open Day event this term, we would like to extend a 20% discount to the Specialised Program surcharge on bookings made for five or more sessions. Session times will be 9am – 5:30pm, with the [...]
