Classrooms tailored to your child’s learning needs

Nursery, Toddler 1 and Toddler 2
(0 ~ 3 yrs)

In our infant and toddler classrooms we encompass a family like environment for our youngest children. Our infant and toddler holistic wellbeing is of upmost importance at Little Locals Auchenflower. We provide a respectful environment that is rich in learning possibilities and provides a safe space for our children to unfold naturally in their own space and time. Our mission is to grow competent and confident learners that are secure in their sense of belonging and socialising with others.

Jnr and Snr Kindy
(3 ~ 4 yrs)

In our junior kindergarten and senior kindergarten classrooms we provide a safe learning environment for all our children. Each individual child is unique in their own way and we understand that all children learn differently. We believe our environment acts as the third teacher and we set up inviting provocations that provoke thought and wonder for our children to extend their current interests on a deeper level.

Kindergarten (4 ~ 5 yrs)

Our Kindergarten room is managed by university-trained Early Childhood Teachers, specializing in the Early Years. The program is delivered in alignment with the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines and Early Years Framework. We provide experiences which allow children opportunities to develop a range of skills, knowledge and dispositions for learning that we believe will set them up for life long learning.

We aim to provide children with opportunities that will allow them to:

  • Be intellectually challenged and engaged
  • Collaborate with their Teachers, Educators, and other children (through discussions, interactions, enquiry, and planning of their own ideas)
  • Take ownership and responsibility for what they are generally interested in and have accomplished
  • Experience pride and satisfaction when problem solving for overcoming obstacles and challenges
  • Apply their own learning through purposeful and playful ways
  • Develop a sense of belonging to both Little Locals and the wider community

Kitchen

All the meals are prepared onsite and are planned in alignment with the Nutrition Australia Guidelines. We offer a 4-week rotational menu for each season of the year to ensure that children are provided and exposed to a variety of different food groups.

Centre Manager - Sophie Jones

I’ve been in the Early Years sector for 11 years and am extremely passionate about the Early Years and advocating for a play-based approach to learning. Play based learning encourages children to act on their natural curiosity and engage in experiences based on their own interests and strengths, whilst also providing opportunities for both uninterrupted and teacher-initiated lead moments.

I look forward to meeting all the prospective children and families over the next couple of months and welcoming you into our Little Locals community!
