Mornington Childcare History – Little Grasshoppers Early Learning Centre

Little Grasshoppers Early Learning Centres have significant experience and history on the Mornington Peninsula, having been around some 25 years. Owner Kaye Ellis started the business looking to engender warmth and communication between staff, families and children, and at Little Grasshoppers we believe we have achieved that vision thanks to our time in the business.


Little Grasshoppers Early Learning Centre has a philosophy based around providing an environment conducive to assisting children in their future learning. A play based curriculum gives children the opportunity to learn new skills and become familiar with their environment. We do our best to bring as many opportunities and interactivity into our childcare classes and genuinely believe that your child will enjoy and thrive at Little Grasshoppers.
