POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Secure, supported and reciprocal relationships are the heart of our education programme that leads private early learning centres across Melbourne. From positive relationships come positive interactions that allow your child to develop fully, as they’ll always be engaged. An engaged child is empowered to express their ideas and make choices about their learning.
We recognise that as learners, children are:

  • competent, capable and creative.
  • secure, connected and respectful.
  • happy, playful and curious.
  • confident, motivated and involved.
  • inquisitive, both as problem posers and problem solvers.

ACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

At Little Learners Early Education, we seek to provide an active learning environment for your child at our kindergarten and childcare centre in South Morang (North Melbourne). Active learning involves an active search for meaning by the learner, constructing knowledge rather than passively receiving it, and shaping it, as well as being shaped by the experience.
This includes:

  • a safe, responsive and reciprocal relationship between the educator and your child,
  • allowing your child to apply their unique interests, strengths and skills to individually designed activities.
  • high expectations for each child and an understanding of their capacity to contribute to their community.

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

Children learn best through play and age-appropriate challenges. They’re active learners who make sense of their world and themselves when they have opportunities to investigate and explore materials and ideas through play and interactions with people.

At our early learning centre and preschool, all activities are learning experiences that children are invited to join and have fun exploring their abilities and knowledge.
