Little Scholars provide early learning & care to these groups:
Nursery Rooms (0-2 Year Olds)
Catering to the littlest members of the Little Scholars family, we provide two fully equipped Nursery Rooms at Yatala and are carefully designed to look after babies from 0-2. Our first nursery caters for ages 0-12 months, and is led by two very experienced, qualified educators who love and cherish 8 babies per day.
Our second nursery caters for ages 1 – 2 years and has a maximum of 8 little scholars with two qualified educators leading a program designed to stimulate and excite all little scholars.
Our Toddlers Room offers care for Little Scholars for 10 children and has two educators. This room is the most active as the children in this room are aged between 15months – 2 years and are constructively navigating their way through walking, talking and learning concepts. This classroom is oversized with its own kitchen, for cooking and a huge natural adventure playground that encourages children to explore and find.
We’ve enlisted the help of leading designers and decorators to create cosy and friendly spaces for your children to explore and enjoy. Different sections of the rooms will have themes, and there is ample space to play and learn. Your baby can overlook the waterfall and fish pond as they play and crawl.
Early Learners Environment (2-3 year olds)

Within each Early Learner room will be child made decorations using sustainable practises, natural toys, games and educational aids. Your children will be encouraged to explore and play, whilst learning how to be considerate towards their peers and their Educators.
The Early Learners also get their own kid-friendly bathroom, and assistance with toilet training can be provided if it is required.

The outdoor play area makes it extra fun with Little Scholars Yatala having over 1.5 acres of real manicured grass for children to enjoy, with a bicycle track and cubby houses complete with slippery dips, herbs and vegetables gardens. We use water tanks to teach the children about sustainability and use these for our very own gardens.
All of our play equipment has been custom built from eco-friendly materials, and the shaded areas provide cool places to play on hot days, and shelter from the elements when it’s raining.
We’ll make sure that your kids are always wearing their Little Scholars hats while they’re outside, and we’ll also provide constant supervision to make sure they are always safe and happy.
