Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Framework and National Quality Framework and is Interest, strength-based learning which is the foundation of our programs. As a parent, you will enjoy seeing your child’s individuality, talents and confidence grow as a result of attending Little Beginnings.
These early years are so critical — we have a focus on identifying, nurturing and celebrating your child’s individuality. We use a program called Storypark where families can view their child’s progress and be interactive in sharing wonderful holidays or other information directly with the educators. We also offer transition reports for our children moving from Kinder to School.
