Our Learning Environments
At Little Scholars we believe that ‘the environment is the third teacher’ (Reggio Emilia theory). The physical environment and the learning spaces that we set up for children contribute to children’s wellbeing, creativity and developing independence.
Inside we aim to set up inviting, interesting, and uncluttered spaces for children to explore. The indoor environment should be made up of a variety of areas include quiet areas, building and construction, dining area, creative expression and arts, dramatic play, and more. The children’s lockers should be in a suitable place for families and should also be near your curriculum area. Your shelving and equipment should be utilised in creative ways and not just pushed up against the walls – try and create spaces for children to be in and to navigate around. Your dining areas should include limited tables and chairs (to promote progressive meals), a buffet or shelf just for dining equipment and at the child’s level to create independence.
There is something magical about childhood. The simplicity of what it means to be a child, from running, climbing and laughing, to exploring the world through curious eyes.
"My son has just started his second week at Redland bay little scholars from moving him from another daycare. To say we are pleased we moved is an understatement! My son tries wearing his "kindy shirt" every day and gets upset when we tell him no kindy today, he just loves going so much! The staff are exceptional and I love getting an update on your app on what he has done for the day. This centre continually impresses me every time I go!"Stacey McDonnell
Thank you so much for your time this morning touring myself and our little girl around. It’s absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to start! Little miss didn’t want to leave.Melissah Evans
Outstanding facility, caring and experienced staff, seriously could not ask for better! I’m so happy that we choose Little Scholars for Miss 4yo and think that the new owner’s should feel very proud of what they have achieved. Highly recommend!Miss Jodee
I’m a Mum who would “never send my child to a centre”... I’m fastidious & extremely protective. I’m so, so happy to have been introduced to LS Stapylton and even more thrilled at the progress of Master 4 since he started going here. His personality has just bloomed!! Great staff, beautiful centre, inspiring environment. Couldn’t recommend Little Scholars highly enough!Sharna Rouse
