Who we are

learn, develop and grow through play

Little Diggers Preschool aims to promote respect for children and families. We understand the importance of their early childhood years. We value the importance of play as children learn, develop and grow through play. With this knowledge, we have created a child-centred program that aims to provide a wide variety of fun, challenging and exciting experiences that are developmentally appropriate and designed to cater for different ages, levels and needs.

We cater for children aged 0- 2 years. Children ages 0-2 join our Kittens group, ages 3-4 join the Pussycats group, and children ages 4 - 5 join the Owl group at our centre. We are confident that the experiences offered at the Centre will support each child in successfully reaching their potential by building confidence and providing meaningful learning opportunities.

 
Our approach

As early childhood educators believe children who are respected in their intellectual, social, physical, emotional and self-management development grow up having a positive self-image. Therefore, they engage young mobile children in a variety of individual, collaborative and cooperative play and learn activities. Our discovery-based framework to learning encourages children to be curious; to make and to test out predictions about their world in a safe environment.

about play, we believe:

■ children investigate their world through inquisitiveness and discovery

■ children develop a positive self-image; there are no right or wrongs, just lots of ways to make intricate links about the world!

■ children develop intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally as well as acquire self-management skills.

What other's say

A centre at the War Vets - that's amazing – well done! As a family with no grandparents in the country we would have loved our children to have had that experience. How special for the kids and the residents. I also think it would be a fabulous news story and the amazing relationships that will develop. Let me know if and when you are keen to get some publicity as I can think of heaps of publications that would be keen to feature that story!
