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.

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

Little Locals Auchenflower employs a qualified Chef to provide healthy and nutritious meals for all of the children. 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.

We are committed to supporting local so where possible we have partnered with local green grocers, fruit shops and butchers to source our supplies. We have created edible gardens for our Chef to access and they are also part of our day to day educational programs with our children.

Brisbane City Council monitors our Kitchen annually along with a private auditor and we current hold a 5 Star Rating in alignment with the Eat Safe program.
