Little Beginnings Learning Centres promote the value of childhood at a time when
children as capable learners and co-constructors continue their life journey. This is
inclusive of respecting and embracing diversity and encouraging collaboration and
belonging for all participants.
We believe that early childhood is a unique stage of life. We are committed to
the care and individual interests of each child. We believe that we enable this
by providing a safe, fun and friendly environment where children can foster and
maintain friendships with each other and staff. Early childhood is a time for children
to discover who they are and how they fit into the world. Essential to this, is the
freedom to explore, to be a child and to be protected.
We also aim to provide children with opportunities to thrive and wholly participate in
learning through guidance, relationships and resources, maximising every child’s
potential. This will be achieved through an inclusive and respectful framework and
open learning environments.
Little Beginnings Learning Centres aim for excellence in delivering early childhood
education and the framework for this ongoing improvement is outlined in the
Centre’s Quality Improvement Plan.
To positively influence the lifelong outcomes of children.
Respecting all children’s voices equitably and acting with integrity to advocate on their behalf.
Creating relationships with parents that honour and respect their role as the child’s first educator
To develop a culture that through leadership and empowerment will ensure sustainability and raise the capacity of each educator.
To respond to community change and work collaboratively with partners to understand how a child fits in their community.
* We value children and childhood

Little Beginnings Learning Centres recongises and respects the traditional custodians of Australia.
