360° Views of a Childcare Centre
Students can take their time exploring a real-life childcare centre! We’ve got both indoor and outdoor virtual environments covered so even if they’ve never set foot in a centre, they will know exactly what’s going on.
In each room of the virtual tour, we’ve placed ‘Hot Spots’ which give your students an inside scoop of what they’re looking at! They’ll get new information in every Hot Spot – so keep an eye out!
