Welcome to Little Flippers Kindergarten.

littleflippers-centreFinding a new early childhood service for your child can be a daunting task. At Little Flippers Kindergarten our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and aesthetic skills to become competent and confident individuals, and for you as a parent/guardian to feel safe knowing that your child is receiving the best possible care. We cater for children 0 to 5 years in age appropriate group configurations.

At our Centre our age groupings are:

0-2 Babies room – Explorers

The Explorers’ daily routine is relaxed and progressive and follows each child’s individual preferences regarding bottles, meals, sleep and play. Educators also work closely with each family to support routines developed at home. A separate, tranquil sleep room with soothing music and dimmed lighting helps accommodate each child’s individual sleep routine.babies-room-1

2-3 Toddler room – Discoverers

The children are involved in a range of age appropriate experiences such as art, music, movement and storytelling, that aids development and children to grow at their own pace. The Educators provide an educational program that focuses on encouraging independence and the development of language, self expression and fundamental social skills.

3-5 Preschool room – Inventors

The program is relaxed, flexible and allows for both spontaneous and planned experiences. Children are provided with interesting aesthetically pleasing and engaging activities. Activities are designed to provide concepts that enhance understanding and learning in areas of literacy, maths, science, music, environment and creativity. The comprehensive School Readiness component of our program prepares each child for the move to school in a manner which is non threatening and educational. We believe that
learning and playing are one.

At this time of your child’s life, he or she is busy exploring new friendships, learning to make decisions, and becoming more aware of his or her own unique talents and abilities. For this reason, their child care centre experience will lay an important foundation for their future. Providing a stimulating and nurturing environment is vitally important.

I would like to welcome you to Little Flippers Kindergarten and look forward to getting to know and support your child and family

I just thought I’d share a little bit about me and my time in the early childhood industry. It wasn’t until later in my working life that I began studying a diploma in early childhood. I had heard many wonderful stories from my wife that has been in the industry for years. She encouraged me to begin study and now here I am loving every minute of fostering children’s development in their early years. 

I love seeing children accept new challenges or learn new skills while in our care and it brings me so much joy building these foundations of learning.

My role as the Director of Little Flippers Kindergarten has given me a challenge of the ways to run a service; a challenge I’ve enjoyed and continue to learn in.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two children aged 7 and 3. Some favourites of the kids and mine too while we are at home are creating things with play dough, basketball in the backyard and swimming in our pool in the warmer weather.

I look forward to building my relationships with your families and please don’t hesitate to contact me if needed.
