Our COVID-19 Safety Plan is now complete and while we are keen to throw open the doors, we are taking a careful and staggered approach to ensure the safety of all our visitors and staff.
Please see our reopening plans below.
ONLINE BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL FOR ALL VISITORS
Stage 1: Wednesday 8 July – Members and their invited guests
Tuesdays – Sundays
One session per day: 9.00 am – 12.00 pm (places are limited)
Members – book now at the Early Start website
We hope to add a second session (1.00 pm – 4.00 pm), then reopen to the general public. We understand this might be frustrating for some and we appreciate your patience as we assess the roll-out of COVID-19 Safety Plan.
MEMBERS CAN BRING A FRIEND
Each member is eligible to bring a friend (e.g. a family of 4 members can come with 4 non-member friends). Guest bookings must be made by a Member for the same session, and will cost $7.50pp (over 12 months).
NEW MEMBERS WELCOME – 20% OFF
Members, you will soon receive an email outlining your new extended expiry date. If you do not receive it (and it’s not hiding in your junk) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before your first visit.

Come on in! Our Discovery Gift Shop will be open to the general public on 8 July from 9.30 – 11.30 am Tuesday – Sunday. Contactless payment methods only.
DISCOVERY AT HOME
While being closed UOW Early Start Discovery Space has loved bringing the Discovery Space to everyone’s homes for the past 15 weeks. More than 330,000 children and families around Australia have accessed the videos, activities and expert insights. As we reopen, we will be scaling back Discovery at Home to a few days a week, but you can access our Discovery at Home content at any time.
We appreciate all the kind messages and support we received while we have been closed. Your patience and understanding have been amazing.
Full details of our staged reopening and FAQs can be found here or you can send us a DM with any questions you have.
DON’T FORGET TO BOOK
All sessions must be booked online – that means you, members. We are unable to accept any visitors without an online booking.
Members – book now at the Early Start website.
