HERITAGE Parc's Busy Bees early education centre has a new artwork which has everyone around the school yard talking.
The huge mural took local Indigenous artist Jakeob Watson a month to complete along with his 'little helpers'.
Aboriginal education officer Kiara Eulo, who came up with the idea, said the feedback from the staff and students had been incredible with the artwork aiming to promote cultural safety and inclusion.
"The kids were involved from the baby room all the way up to our preschool," Ms Eulo said.
"They really love it, and they are still interested so we sit in front of it and speak about it."
The mural recognises the traditional custodians of this region, and includes imagery of the Hunter River, the Wonnarua totem and the hand prints of the service's little clients.
"I tried to represent the Wonnarua country as best I could so it has all the Hunter river, local animals and food sources, as well as the totem," Mr Watson said.
"It's important for the little ones who are Indigenous because seeing it will make them feel culturally safe."
