    6 Weeks - 2 Years

    The main focus for this age group is providing abundance of time and opportunities for children to establish new relationships on top of the few they have known since birth. It is important for us that babies are able to find a new sense comfort and security within the Little Learners environment in order to kick-start their developmental journey.


    2-3 Years

    The toddler room focuses on encouraging children to explore and develop their sense of self. As this room are suited for children of ages 2-3 years old, this is an integral part of their social-emotional development. Encouraging children towards positive eating, identifying safety, social interactions, daily routines and self-helps skills are crucial to their sense of self-confidence.

    4+ Years

    The 4 year old kinder room is where children explore their self-expression; through emotions, playing in different environments, and communication with their social environment. As they are constantly learning new things about their being, we use their individual and group interests as contributions to our innovative and emergent programs. This is where they further develop their independence, self-help skills, social and academic skills in a structured and supportive environment. The 4 year old Kinder room is part of the Victorian Funded Kinder Program established by the Department of Education. Our formal kindergarten program operates every day between 8:30am to 4:30pm.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We provide most of the essentials that may be needed throughout the day. We ask that you pack and label; spare clothes, water bottle, comfort items/dummies. And if your child requires a sleeping bag, milk bottles, formula, or breast milk.

    We offer orientation sessions for families to come along before the first day to have a short play with us. These sessions are usually close to the first day and act as a good lead in. It gives you, your child, and the educators time to get to know each other and the opportunity to ask any questions or provide important information. These sessions are usually organized once enrolment is confirmed, they last for 2 hours and are free of charge. Talking about it at home is also a great way to get your child excited for all the amazing experiences they will get to be a part of.

    Be positive! Make the drop off a happy experience and take a few minutes to help your child to settle in. The mornings can be busy, but taking some time to find an activity your child enjoys and saying goodbye can help for a smoother start to their day. There will always be a warm and caring educator on hand to help. You are always welcome to give the centre a call after you have left for an update.

    We have been at this centre for over 5 years and have had an exceptional experience. The carers are very nurturing and dedicated and are almost an extended family to ours. We would highly recommend.


    Great centre with efficient educators and staff. My child loves this place and we as parents feel secured and at ease knowing that our child is in safe/caring hands. Amazing team!
