Head Start Curriculum
Providing the best start to your child’s future, from any age
Child led education. Child led decisions to build ownership, participation, resilience and confidence. Inspired by educators to develop curiosity and enquiry.
Your child’s learning journey begins on their first day with us, whatever age that may be.
Regardless of a child’s age, Little Learners educators work towards developing the foundation skills they need for the next stage of their journey. Programming is age (or developmentally) appropriate and always focused on developing children through play to their full potential during these critical early years.
Our educators work together to ensure all children transition smoothly between rooms and continue to progress with their readiness skills.
Both my son and daughter attended Little Learners (8 years in total.) The knowledge and growth that they both received I believe will help and did help with the transition to primary school. The educators here are knowledgeable and have your child’s best interests at heart. I feel content knowing that both my children have and will enter primary school with the necessary skills to get them through. Thank you, Little Learners, I entrusted the care of my children to you and you treated them as your own. Thank you for supporting and caring for my kids. Thanks Michelle and your team, you do an amazing job!
4 Year Old Kindergarten
We’ll have your child school ready, resilient, and ready to take on the world!
Graduates of the Little Learners full day kindergarten program are recognised by local schools as socially, physically and developmentally ready for Prep!
There are so many advantages to full day kindergarten. Full days allow us to focus on all areas of your child’s development including school readiness skills (also known as foundation skills) resilience, confidence, “ownership” of their learning, and emerging interests.
These skills are so important for the next stage of your child’s educational journey.
Educated to a higher level, full day kindergarten children are not only given the time to focus on exceeding all school benchmarks, but have more opportunities to develop emerging skills and interests – something that cannot be fully achieved in sessional programs. From science, maths, and technology, to yoga, to cooking, to athletics, to horticulture, to manual arts, to creative arts and languages (and much more) your Little Learner graduates kindergarten with the dual advantage of school readiness and far more developed skills and interests. What a Head Start!
My daughter finished 3 and 4 year kinder from this centre and as parent we were extremely satisfied after looking at the overall progress of our kid. She has started prep now & her school teachers are amazed with her learning abilities which was possible only because of qualified-caring educators and quality teaching programs of this centre. Director Michelle and her office team always answer parent queries with smile. Highly recommend this centre.
3 Year Old Kindergarten
As with 4 year old Kindergarten, our program for 3 year olds is led by degree-qualified early learning specialists and aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework.
A quality kindergarten program will have more of an impact for children who start at age 3 rather than 4. (The benefits are even greater for children who are in vulnerable circumstances.) That extra year at Kindy provides a child with the opportunity to become more socially adept, be better able to cope with their emotions, and to develop better attention skills.
A great kindy program for 3 year olds will lay the foundation of literacy and numeracy through play based learning, which is either self-directed or teacher led to inspire curiosity and discovery, creating seamless learning and building strong pathways academically and socially. As they transition into 4 year old Kindy, children apply the skills and learning they’ve acquired through play into more focused learning that is designed to prepare them for Prep. This “scaffolding” of skills and learning across two years of Kindy creates great learning habits, develops stronger literacy and numeracy, and develops emotional resilience.
My children have been at LL for 3.5 years. LL offers a great 3 & 4 y.o Kinder program, with the benefit of long daycare hours, which suits our working family very well. My children are currently in the Emu and Kookaburra rooms. The teachers are very warming and caring towards my boys. Madison gives my 3 y.o the time he needs to say goodbye with his little routine, so he isn’t upset when I leave. LL has a great program, Flexi Buzz, where I can message the teachers during the day and I receive messages on what they have been learning, making or playing. The centre has many yards which are all nicely maintained and are clean. My children enjoy attending kinder there. Most of the staff know my children, they always greet them with a smile and a hello. The admin team is also wonderful. No question is too silly to them, when it comes to asking about balances or the fee structure. Bianca always follows up any questions I have many regarding the CCS etc.
I commend you on taking such a caring interest in the Little Learners children as they transition to school.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you and the Kinder Program staff for the informative and useful transition statements that you prepared for the Little Learners children as they transition to school. They are professionally written and provide our Prep staff with valuable information about each child.

Little Learners has been fantastic in supporting our transition process from Kinder to Prep. Their School Readiness Program has certainly helped prepare children for school. The teachers work with us willingly to ensure a smooth transition process. The children appreciate the follow up visits in Prep and absolutely love saying hello to their Kinder teachers again!
