Indoor & OutdoorPlay Spaces
At Little Explorers Early Learning, children have the opportunity to explore both indoor and outdoor play areas.
Our spacious, open plan inside spaces have been designed to provide various zones to enable children to play, learn and grow, while also helping to facilitate mixed age (or family) grouping, which has immense benefits for social learning.
Resources are provided in an appealing way to encourage the children to make their own choices and to actively participate in their own learning.
The vast outdoor space provides large shaded areas for running, jumping and games as well as various play spaces which allow the children to explore and learn in a safe environment. Our sand pit offers a sensory play area and climbing frames and other resources provide for gross motor development and risk-taking. We consider the environment and ever changing learning environment and as such, will modify this area based on the needs of the children and families that attend our centre.
A separate area is provided for children under 2 which gives them the chance to develop their individual skills in a safe environment and in a time suitable to their age and level of development.
What We Offer
We provide healthy, nutritious, child-friendly meals which are prepared and cooked on-site. Meals provided consist of Morning Tea, Lunch, and Afternoon Tea. The weekly menu is available in our entry.
Our menu adheres to government guidelines and is based on the recommendations of the “Caring for Children – Birth to 5 years (Food, Nutrition and Learning Experiences)” guide and offers children at least 50% of their recommended daily nutrient intake. Food intolerances and allergies are catered for.
We offer a seasonal menu with a fortnightly rotation cycle to create variety and ensure optimal nutrition is achieved.
