At Little Beginnings Learning Centres, we value the early childhood years as a time of foundation building to ensure lifelong positive outcomes for children.
Our educators want to work as an extension of the various members of your child’s community. This includes working not only with you as your child’s first educator but also looking more broadly at your child in the context of their community.
We welcome families to our centre with a promise that we want to partner together to find out as much of the essential understanding you have of your child as quickly as possible.
Please take the time to view the information contained on our website but know that it is only a snapshot of the knowledge and skills our educators can bring to the care relationship. The quality and scope of these relationships are much more intrinsic and sometimes the written word cannot do justice to these complexities.
With this in mind, we encourage you to take the next step and make contact with our Centre Director to get to know more about us. We are much more than words on paper. Relationships are the essence of what we do. Our philosophy, our teams, our vision and our resources are all focused on helping you give your child the best possible start in life and ensuring positive outcomes for your child.

Jane & Adam and Melissa & Tony
Finding a new early childhood service for your child can be a daunting task.
At Little Beginnings Fernhill Road, our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and creative skills to become competent and confident individuals, and for you as a parent/guardian to feel safe knowing that your child is receiving the best possible care.
We cater for children from birth to 5 years, in age-appropriate group configurations
For our younger age groups our educators place great emphasis on meeting your child’s individual routine (sleep times, mealtimes etc.) to allow for a smooth transition between home and the centre. Through nurturing and developing secure attachments with your child we encourage them to grow and learn. Babies are like little scientists investigating and experimenting through their senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing.
When children then move into the toddler years, educators program developmental experiences for your child according to their level of skill and based on their interest. We follow your child’s lead and aim to increase your child’s skills and abilities in preparation for transition to the preschool room and your child’s growing independence during this time.
Your child’s growing knowledge and capabilities during their preschool years are an intense time of learning and consolidation, capitalising on their existing trust bonds with the centre educators ahead of commencing formal schooling.
Transitioning to ‘big school’ is an important time in your child’s life — and yours
We focus on making this transition as smooth as possible and giving your child important skills to help them enter school with confidence. We also aim to inspire a lifelong love of learning in your child.
At this time of your child’s life, he or she is busy exploring new friendships, learning to make decisions, and becoming more aware of his or her own unique talents and abilities. For this reason, their kindergarten – preschool experience will play an important foundation for their future and providing a stimulating and nurturing environment is vitally important.
