My husband and I could have not asked for a better child care provider than Little Learners Long Day Care & Pre-School. The level of care provided is exceptional. Kim Jones and Staff are qualified, caring, patient, friendly and the centre has fantastic learning programs and facilities. Our son Jedd has developed in so many ways, demonstrating new skills and talents in all areas of learning. We highly recommend Little Learners Long Day Care & Pre-School
We had the good fortune of choosing Little Learners for our three children's daycare needs from an early age (our eldest from the age of eight weeks old) and we are ever-thankful for that decision.
We have watched as each of our children have developed into confident, imaginative, respectful, empathetic and social little people and this is in no small part due to the nurturing care, attention and encouragement they experience daily at Little Learners. Our children are not just a number - they are individuals, with various personalities, interests and needs, and are cared for in a manner that recognizes this. They are encouraged to develop upon their individual interests, and seek out and accept new experiences and challenges, all of which serve to build confidence in themselves and their abilities, and create a general wonder about the world and what it holds in store for them.
Our eldest son graduated from Little Learners Preschool in 2014 and commenced kindergarten at a local private school this year, walking into his new class with boundless confidence and enthusiasm. We have watched with awe and admiration as throughout the year he has eagerly grabbed hold of new opportunities and continued to persevere with challenges, expanding on the skills and experiences he was encouraged to gain during his time at Little Learners.
The staff are wonderful, to the point where I hesitate to use the term "staff". To our children they are more akin to family. Indeed, when we collect our younger children from Little Learners, our eldest son still races in to share his latest exciting school news or sporting triumph with his, now former, daycare workers. Despite him having moved on to "big school", they never hesitate to give him their full attention, mirroring his excitement and enthusiasm, just as they do for the children still in their care. This, in itself, says a great deal about Little Learners. The children may eventually move on, but they always remain part of the Little Learners "family".
As parents, we always feel encouraged and supported at Little Learners, whether it be in seeking parenting advice, addressing an issue at daycare that may have arisen, or being physically involved in our children's experiences during their daily-life at Little Learners. I highly recommend Little Learners Long Daycare and Preschool to any parent who is seeking a safe, nurturing, friendly and family-focused environment for their little ones to grow, play and learn.
Our family has attended Little Learners since just after it opened 10 years ago. All four of our children have attended since babies and thrived in the supportive and encouraging environment. The staff at times have become more like our extended family and have all been extremely approachable and genuinely interested in the children they are entrusted with. Our children, who now attend school, have been provided with a great platform to commence their infants schooling through the preschool programmed offered. Thank you to all the staff and management for assisting in raising four beautiful, well mannered and intelligent young girls.
Our family has been fortunate enough to be a part of the Little Learners community for the past seven years. Upon relocating to Dubbo for our employment, with a new baby in tow and away from support networks and all that was familiar, we were initially left feeling despondent, drowning in a sea of early childhood services that just didn't seem to be the right fit for our family. That was until we came across Little Learners. Our family was welcomed with open arms into an environment which reflected high quality standards and professionalism coupled with a warm home away from home feel. Throughout our children's journey at Little Learners, from the nursery to the comprehensive school readiness program, these qualities have been demonstrated through the quality care and education provided across all areas of development. They have assisted our children to grow into confident and happy individuals with strong attachments and lasting friendships, ready to take on 'Big School' and cement their place in the wider community.
Little Learners is a family operated early childhood service with a parent partnered home away from home philosophy and continuous achievement in providing care and education consistent with the highest of standards as outlined by the 'Australian Children's Education and Care Authority'. For these reasons and more Little Learners have proven to be the ideal foundation for the care and education of our children and are why we highly recommend this service to other families.
