The emotional, social and physical development of children in their early years has a huge impact on how they progress through their school years and onwards into adulthood. That’s why selecting the right childcare centre is so important. So if you’re currently looking for the best childcare centres, Logan locals have two incredible choices. Read on to discover the benefits of Little Scholars Stapylton and Yatala.
Little Scholars Stapylton
Little Scholars Stapylton is an early learning centre where children look forward to attending and often, don’t want to come home. As soon as you walk in, it’s pretty obvious why. It’s not only homely and inviting, but little imaginations can run wild here with splashes of colour, themed areas, beautiful toys, games and educational aids, books, waterfall and fish pond, science and construction zones, a bicycle track, cubby houses, slippery dips, a solar-powered river, vegetable gardens, mud play and a truly gorgeous nature walk.
It makes you want to be a kid again, right? All of these amazing features are all to benefit the children and their overall development. Mud play might sound stinky and dirty but not only is it fun, mud also increases a child’s brain activity because all senses are used, it increases physical activity, builds creativity, reduces stress and anxiety and so much more!
Little Scholars Yatala
Wrapped in oversized verandahs, Little Scholars Yatala seamlessly embraces the outdoors in all aspects of the centre. Like Little Scholars Stapylton, the Yatala Early Learning Centre is a homely and inviting space with playful themes, beautiful toys made from natural materials, a bike track, bamboo mazes, slippery dips, swings, forts, running river beds, vegetable gardens, mud pits and more.
Little Scholars Yatala is dedicated to making the transition to Prep a smooth experience for all children which is why they have partnered with local schools and have a Prep teacher from Rivermount College visit each week to work with the children and teachers.
What else makes these the best childcare centres Logan has to offer?
We believe that the emphasis on nature play at both our Stapylton and Yatala centres bring out the best in all children. From developing gross motor skills and improved concentration to experimental knowledge and mental health, getting kids outdoors to experience nature has many benefits.
In addition to our emphasis on nature play and academic skills, both centres offer extra-curricular activities including art, music, dance, yoga and soccer lessons. We believe these activities are equally as important to develop valuable life skills and confidence.
Lastly, it’s essential that a childcare centre fits in with your everyday family life. Both centres are conveniently located for an easy drop off on your work commute into Brisbane and five meals a day are included in the fee, so you don’t have to worry about making lunches in the morning!
