Childcare and Kindergarten - South Morang
From Our Director
Welcome, Parents and Carers!
I’m Michelle Covelli, Director, and I am delighted to invite you to tour our beautiful Centre with me. Choosing the right educational environment for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent, and it starts early!
As an early childhood educator for 17 years, I can tell you that Little Learners is different. We have a unique and genuine commitment to excellence in early education and to providing families in our community with as much individual help and service as they need.
We build trusted relationships with parents and can be relied upon as more than just a childcare or kindergarten: our early childhood expertise and commitment to families plus our professional connections in the community mean that we will give you personalised service, tailored to your individual requirements. We will give your child the excellent care and educational opportunities you would expect, provide flexibility with your schedule, can connect you to allied health and community services, and will optimise your childcare subsidy… and much more. We know that great communities and great futures begin with thriving children and well-supported families!
I’m proud to say the Little Learners is consistently rated as Exceeding the National Standard in early education. And that is exactly what we will offer you. We exceed expectations by delivering the best possible start in life for your child according to their needs and interests, a nurturing and loving environment staffed by experienced professionals, a culture of belonging, trusted relationships, developing emotional resilience, and setting them up to be confident, happy learners, ready for life beyond Kindy!
So, please feel free to visit us at Little Learners. I look forward to welcoming you.

From our Owners – Why Little Learners is Different
Exceeding the National Quality Standard of Child Care and Kindergartens
Trusted partnerships with parents, and with the community
As parents of our own small tribes, we understand that every child is an individual and each one has a unique style of learning. We have experienced “one size fits all” child care and kindergartens in our own families and wanted to do better. We wanted other parents to know that their children could be recognised for who they are, cared for by educated professionals (who would treat their children as a parent would) and personally engage them in ways that would allow them to learn and thrive – ready, excited, and inspired to begin the next stage of their journeys.
We knew all of this was possible with a commitment to care, excellence, and great relationships.
Better, Together… More Help for Parents
Believing in the power of community, we wanted to create a centre where we could become trusted partners in the busy lives of parents and caregivers. That’s why we are always here to help negotiate complicated government forms and processes, healthcare, and social services and we also provide other free amenities such as shuttles to and from public transport, pick ups and drop offs when needed, taking children to medical appointments, and liaising with allied health and community services. We also run a community clothes swap, book swap, and a coffee spot at our centre. And parents are always welcome to attend staff training nights if they wish to learn the latest in early education. We just want to make things easier for families! We know that supported parents with happy children enjoying the best education and care will make our community even greater.
We are extremely proud of our relationships with our parents and with the greater South Morang community and in 2021 celebrated this by creating the South Morang Community Gardens, next to the centre. The Gardens are for everyone, a great outdoor destination for recreation in our area and planted with food that all are welcome to take home as part of our commitment to sustainability. We are working on adding more facilities and are committed making the Gardens a valuable recreational hub for our community.
Each year we have exceeded the National Quality Standard in child care and kindergartens and, as one of South Morang’s longest established centres, our promise to parents is that Little Learners will exceed your expectations too!
