This is definitely an incursion that every centre should do. Farmer Dave keeps the children engaged with bush stories and plenty of humour. We absolutely LOVE Farmer Dave and can't wait to have him visit our centre again.

Farmer Dave kept the children engaged with humour and stories from the bush. It was great to hear the story Tiddilick the frog while making damper and then a group of the children went outside to reinact the traditional story. Within the program, I felt all areas from MTOP framework was included.
