helping children reach their full potential

Who We Are

At Little Assets, we understand that deciding who will care for your child when you’re apart  is a big step. That’s why we take pride in providing a safe, nurturing learning environment for your child – and for you.

We want you to feel as comfortable and inspired as your little one, when they engage in our beautiful indoor/outdoor learning spaces with natural elements. Our encouraging educators, by their side.

We want you to have confidence in knowing your child is receiving a dynamic, high-quality education. One that is centred around your child’s unique self. Structured by progressive, flexible routines. And celebrates the fun of being a child.

We’re here for your child – and for you, because working together is how the best learning happens. So, we welcome you to engage us with any questions or concerns.

And of course, enjoy our centre as much as your child will.

PHILOSOPHY

Little Assets was founded on the belief that every child deserves the best possible early childhood education. And we believe this begins with providing a safe, nurturing and engaging environment where your child feels happy and loved.

A place that values every child’s identity, culture, individual strengths and interests – in order to build their confidence, wellbeing and enthusiasm to learn.

This is who we are, at Little Assets.

We are a centre that embraces the effectiveness of play-based learning. We are a centre that embraces the effectiveness of play-based learning, using the practices, principles and outcomes of the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards. We continuously encourage children to make choices, discover, create, explore, communicate openly – while having fun in our welcoming, well-resourced environments.

We also believe in continuous professional development for our educators, ensuring your child always receives the best-quality education.

Finally, we celebrate the diversity of every family, recognising that learning primarily happens at home. For this reason, we strongly value an open partnership with families – one in which we’ll always honour the individual needs and aspirations of you and your child.

Because every child deserves the best possible early childhood education.
