Educational Program

Little Wonders Early Learning Centre is a fun and educational learning environment! Our centre embraces the cultural languages and experiences of our educators, children, families and the community in our educational programs for inclusive and holistic learning. We value the input from everyone involved in Little Wonders Early Learning Centre for the continual implementation of a meaningful educational program. Our Educational Programming and Planning includes the utilisation of technology for a digitally accessible educational evaluation and reflection of children’s learning each day. Educators collaborate with each child and their family in the creation of children’s individualised journey portfolios which includes the child’s development and progression through various observations and professional resources. Our Educational Programming and Planning is based upon the National Quality Framework and our Centre Philosophy.

Little Wonders Early Learning Centre takes great inspiration from Vygotsky…

Pedagogy must be oriented not to the yesterday, but to the tomorrow of the child’s development. Only then can it call to life in the process of education those processes of development which now lie in the zone of proximal development” (Vygotsky, 1993, pp. 251-252).

Little Wonders Early Learning Centre is committed to guiding each child in reaching their full potential…

“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.” (Rudolf Steiner)
