We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family to Little Grasshoppers. You are about to embark on a journey with us leaving your child in our care. We hope that we can build a strong and trusting relationship with you as we watch your child grow together over the next several years.
Little Grasshoppers is a family owned and operated business with a hands on approach. We are committed to making every child’s experience at Little Grasshoppers a positive one. We are available at all times to help parents with the transition into childcare and throughout our journey together.
Little Grasshoppers is an exciting and comprehensive facility professionally designed with great care and thought for the needs of babies and young children. Separate rooms and modern outdoor play areas are specifically designed for the age, abilities and maturity of the children.
At Little Grasshoppers, we believe children learn through play. Our programs are based on the Early Years Learning Framework Guidelines and it is imperative that the framework is be used in partnership with families, and educators to develop learning programs responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities. We integrate kindergarden into our long daycare environment to offer your child sessions that prepare them for school. We work closely with the school your child will attend to make sure the transition is smooth and your child’s teacher is familiar with their needs and interests.
The safety and wellbeing of children is never far from the media spotlight. Parents leaving their child in our care can rest assured that every practical step has been taken to ensure their safety.
Access to the centre is done through an electronically secured door with individual pin codes allowing family’s entry at all times, while visitors to the centre face a locked door. Authorised persons only are to collect children unless otherwise arranged. We undertake risk assessments on our planned activities, keeping everyone safe at all times.
We look forward to getting to know you and your child as we work closely together to make your family’s experience at Little Grasshoppers a fundamental part of your child’s development.
“Our philosophy and curriculum provides the foundation for future learning through a play based opportunity to explore the environment and develop new skills.”
