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.

What a Head Start!
