Welcome to...


A new outdoor adventure based learning experience for 5-9 year olds that blends the Australian curriculum with stories, fun, games and life-shaping experiences.


Learning should be fun! Activities that light up the fun centres in our brain also super-charge the neural pathways that enable us to stay focused as we encounter new information.

Mini-Heroes is a play-based program - perfect for your child's current phase of development. The Adventure starts each week with a story - a scenario that the Mini Heroes then 'step into' and follow through to reach their goal.



In order to solve the mystery, uncover the treasure or discover the secret path - whatever the story requires that week, the Mini Heroes will have to learn and practice new skills. Contextualising learning in the way helps young people see the relevance of a skill and adapt it in new circumstances.


Mini Heroes students don't miss out on anything that school students or other homeschool students might being doing elsewhere - in fact they actually cover academic content far beyond their peers because the natural learning context requires deep understanding and practical application. The program covers Australian Curriculum content from Maths, Science, English, History, Geography, Personal Development and Health syllabii.



Even at this young age, there are important character qualities that we develop through challenge-based experiences. Qualities like grit, courage, determination, perseverance, respect for self and others - and of course that one thing that you wish you could give them, but they must earn for themselves...

Self-Esteem. Confidence.

THAT is the hidden treasure that Mini Hero Parents are truly seeking!

Mini Hero's is an exciting story-based adaptation of the Young Hero's Adventure Quest and blends:
  • elements from Maths, History, Science, Geography, English and PDHPE

  • PLUS story-based nature play. 

  • PLUS personal development skills such as teamwork, decision-making, problem solving, and more...

  • PLUS recognition of achievement through the Mini Hero's level program

  • all of which combine to create happy, motivated young minds, excited about life and growing in confidence every week...


* Programs detailing syllabus outcomes and learning activities are available on request
