Welcome to Little Diggers Preschool. We are a unique centre in the heart of Collaroy Plateau, located in the picturesque grounds of the RSL ANZAC Village (the “War Vets”). Little Diggers is a 56 place Long Day Care Preschool catering for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years old. At our centre we believe in the importance of play, and in engaging our children in learning through our guided discovery. We believe in observing what the children are interested in, and then bringing their interests to developmentally appropriate activities.
Our curriculum is designed to support the whole child's growth, and as teachers we design an enriched environment in which the child can explore. As the child explores the environment and activities provided, the teacher acts as a guide and asks open-ended questions to encourage the child to think through the process as he or she comes to an conclusion. Every child is a scientist ready to explore, and we are here to help foster their curiosity!
When your infant is in our care, we are committed to providing a nurturing and caring environment that meets your needs and the needs of your child. As your infant grows we make changes too, so development and learning unfolds naturally.
Toddlers are explorers on the road to learning. They walk all over, eat table food and often take just one nap a day. In a safe and nurturing environment, your little adventurer will find his or her voice, make new friends and develop confidence in new-found abilities.
Preschool kids are in the process of becoming confident learners. Your child is ready for structured learning activities that touch on early literacy, maths, science and social studies, based of course, on play which comes naturally.
