Our Philosophy

“PLAY IS THE ANSWER TO HOW ANYTHING NEW COMES ABOUT.” — Jean Piaget

“PLAY IS THE ANSWER TO HOW ANYTHING NEW COMES ABOUT.” — Jean Piaget

At Little Beginnings Learning Centres, we believe that ‘play experiences’ in early childhood build the framework for all future achievement.

The early childhood years are the most intense learning phase of a child’s life. At Little Beginnings Learning Centres we strive to maximise the opportunities we give our children in these crucial years to ensure positive lifelong outcomes.

“We see how early childhood experiences are so important to lifelong outcomes, how the early environment literally becomes embedded in the brain and changes its architecture.”
— Andrew S. Garner

Our team is committed to providing your child with an educational and caring environment that allows them to explore their individual capabilities in numerous open-ended play opportunities.

We also know that your child needs a supportive environment that responds to their need for praise. We employ educators who are trained and experienced in early childhood development to understand the need for positive praise for effort, not outcome, is crucial to laying the foundations for future learning.

Our Vision

To positively influence the lifelong outcomes of children

Children

Respecting all children’s voices equitably and acting with integrity to advocate on their behalf.

Families

Creating relationships with parents that honour and respect their role as the child’s first educator.

Educators

To develop a culture that through leadership and empowerment will ensure sustainability and raise the capacity of each educator.

Community

To respond to community change and work collaboratively with partners to understand how a child fits in their community.

To really understand where your child ‘belongs’ in their world we need to partner with you and truly tap into your knowledge as the child’s first educator. To do this we need to build trusting relationships with your family. We provide our educators ongoing professional development to provide you with the best team and to ensure that we retain our educators, so that the relationships they build with your child are long lasting.

Little Beginnings Learning Centres promote the value of childhood at a time when children as capable learners and co-constructors continue their life journey. This is inclusive of respecting and embracing diversity and encouraging open collaboration and belonging for all participants.

At Little Beginnings Learning Centres, we believe that early childhood is a unique stage of life. We are committed to the care and individual interests of each child. We believe that we enable this by providing a safe, fun and friendly environment where children can foster and maintain friendships with each other and staff. Early childhood is a time for children to discover who they are and how they fit into the world. Essential to this is the freedom to explore, to be a child and to be protected.

Little Beginnings Learning Centres aim to provide children with opportunities to thrive and wholly participate in learning through guidance, relationships and resources, maximising every child’s potential. This will be achieved through an inclusive and respectful framework and open learning environments.

Little Beginnings Learning Centres aim for excellence in delivering early childhood education and the framework for this ongoing improvement is outlined in the Centre’s Quality Improvement Plan.
