Little People Child Care
Little People Child Care is an owner operated centre located in Glenmore Park.. We a small 23 place centre catering for children aged six weeks to school aged. We may only be a small centre but what we are not small on is the care and education we provide for all children in our service.
Little People Child Care has two classrooms. The Butterfly Room for the 0-3year old and The Bumblebee Room for the 3-5year olds. We have a large outdoor area play area with a covered veranda allowing us access to the outdoors no matter the weather.
We at Little People acknowledge that each child is an individual and will grow and develop at their own pace. Our educators provide all children with support, encouragement, guidance and challenges to assist them with reaching their full potential. We achieve this through our educational programs that are focused on childrens interests and developmental milestones. Even though our programs aim to educate all children, they are centred around a play based learning concept. After all, the most important lessons we can teach in Early Education is learning is fun. It is our role as educators to allow children to explore learning and the world around them through their own curiosity and exploration.
Our educators are passionate, committed and driven to providing the highest quality of care, education and support to all children and families at the centre. Our room leadesr in The Butterfly Room are Catherine and Josh. Catherine is a Diploma qualified educator who has worked at the service for the past 11 years. Josh is our Educational Leader and has a degree in both Early Childhood and Primary Education. Josh oversees all of our programming and supports educators in planning and training. Our Bumblebee Room leader is our passionate Director and Early Childhood trained teacher Michelle. Michelle has worked in the Early Education Field for the past 30 years. Both rooms have assistant educators who hold either a Diploma or a Certificate 3 and are very passionate about their job in educating young children.
We believe in forming strong working relationships between our educators and families to create a stable and secure environment for the children at the service. This is why all of our Educators are on set rosters. This way our families will know which staff are at the service when they drop off their children and when they pick them up. This allows us to build strong trusting relationships between our families, children and all our Educators. We also have a list of casual educators who have been with the service for a number of years.
