At Little Peoples Early Learning Centre our vision for children’s learning is to provide opportunity and support to meet the highest expectations of individual children’s learning.

We believe that building genuine relationships and partnerships with families supports children in achieving their goals and learning outcomes. We strive to ensure our practices are inclusive of all cultures, religion, abilities, gender and family structure maintaining confidentiality at all times. The centre aims to reflect the values of the community in all its diversity and acknowledge the original custodians of this land, Dharawal people and their language and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community. We role model positive interactions at all times continuously working towards developing and maintaining respectful and ethical relationships with team members, children, families and the wider community.

Educators promote children’s learning by planning and implementing a program that provides opportunity for children to learn through play, intentional teaching and spontaneous learning experiences. Our play-based approach to learning builds on children’s natural motivation to play. In this context children can; explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in imaginative and playful ways.
Involving both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning, children are encouraged and supported in working towards EYLF Learning Outcomes as they foster new learning experiences. This play-based approach teaches children relevant skills whilst having fun and developing a love of learning.

Our experienced educators provide an environment that is secure and predictable where children can explore and investigate. The learning environment values cultural and social diversity and provides continuity of learning. The environment demonstrates flexibility and is inclusive of indoors and outdoor opportunities providing a balance of stimulating and quiet experiences that reflect children’s interests, strengths and needs. Learning areas foster the safety, health and wellbeing of each child. The environment supports individuals and families to develop their wellbeing and self confidence.

Educators encourage support, respect, appreciation and a positive connection with the natural environment. Children are empowered to make choices and take ownership of their learning environment. Educators and children work together to learn about and promote the sustainable use of resources and develop practices that become embedded in our daily routine.

Management support educators to consistently adhere to appropriate ratios and current regulations being the National Quality Standards and maintaining a safe and aesthetically pleasing environment that is welcoming and safe for children and families.
