Outdoor Program

Our modern facility has been purpose-built with an expansive outdoor space and the latest in outdoor equipment. At Little Learners in Dubbo, we know that outside play activities are just as important as inside activities, so we ensure our littlies are inspired to learn wherever they are!

Our fully-trained early childhood and primary school educators are dedicated to ensuring each child receives the care and attention they need to build self-esteem and confidence. Our outdoor programs allow kids to be active and burn energy, while exploring and learning in a secure environment.

Physical Activity

Physical Activity

Our centre implements the Get Up & Grow: Healthy Eating and Physical Activity for Early Childhood program.

In line with this, we implement the following promotion of physical activity as per the age and development stage of each child in attendance:

  • For healthy development in infants (birth to 1 year), physical activity - particularly supervised floor-based play in safe environments - should be encouraged from birth.
  • Toddlers (1 to 3 years) and preschoolers (3 to 5 years) should be physically active every day for at least three hours, spread throughout the day.
  • Children younger than 2 years of age should not spend any time watching television or using other electronic media (DVDs, computer and other electronic games).
  • For children 2 to 5 years of age, sitting and watching television and the use of other electronic media (DVDs, computer and other electronic games) should be limited to less than one hour per day.
  • Infants, toddlers and preschoolers should not be sedentary, restrained or kept inactive for more than one hour at a time - with the exception of sleeping.
  • Our educators will support children in:

  • Learning to use increasingly complex motor skills and movement patterns in order to combine gross and fine movement and balance skills, spatial awareness and problem-solving skills.
  • The development of their physical skillset by providing regular opportunities for outdoor play.
  • The development of their physical skillset by talking with children about how the human body and how important physical activity is for an individual's health and wellbeing.
  • The development of their physical skillset by providing experiences for the children that draw on elements of dance, dramatic play and creative movement.
  • The development of their physical skillset by providing babies with encouragement and safe areas to practice rolling over, sitting, crawling, standing and walking.
