Informed & relevant learning programs

At Little Learners we believe children begin their learning journey from the moment they are born and the years from birth to eight are fundamental in establishing a child’s sense of identity, value, and confidence. We believe parents and families are the first educator and our role in the learning process is that of a facilitator, rather than a teacher.

Our educational programs are designed to be emergent in nature and, through reflective practices, are led by the children’s interests and needs. Learning is achieved through enquiry and play-based activities set in stimulating and responsive environments.

Our educational programs are informed by two approved learning frameworks:

National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which is based on the fundamental belief that children’s lives are characterised as “Belonging, Being and Becoming”.

Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) which identifies five learning outcomes for children that we strive toward:

  1. 1. Children have a strong sense of identity (IDENTITY)
  2. 2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world (COMMUNITY)
  3. 3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing (WELLBEING)
  4. 4. Children are confident and involved learners (LEARNING)
  5. 5. Children are effective communicators (COMMUNICATION)

To further extend the children’s learning we also include many intentional teaching experiences throughout the year which may include the following topics:

  • Music and Movement
  • Water Safety
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Indigenous Celebrations
  • Numeracy & Literacy
  • Christianity Celebrations
  • Sports & Fitness
  • Road Safety
  • Cooking & Healthy Eating Habits
  • Multi-Cultural Celebrations
  • Maths & Science
  • Nature and Outback
  • Community Service

  • Daily Communication Book
