Little Scholars School of early learning Nerang - Now Open
Little Scholars at Nerang is our newest state of the art Early Learning Centre that provides a home away from home with the highest quality educational programs. Our vision is to work hard to equip our children with the skills needed for success in today’s world.
Our aim is to create the flexibility to readily adapt to changing technologies. Our educators foster learning environments that encourage critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, global awareness and social responsibility. Even though we have a modern day vision we are still all about good old fashioned play based learning and fun in a natural, homelike environment that allows children to flourish and grow.
Little Scholars Nerang has been custom-designed to nurture the physical, emotional, cognitive and social interests of young children at all developmental levels. In line with our unique early education approach, all Little Scholars Campuses promote interaction with natural materials, free access between indoor and outdoor spaces and optimise meaningful play opportunities for learning development.
Our highly qualified educators provide high quality learning inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach in purpose built environments complete with lush gardens and an abundance of natural resources. Consisting of three flowing classrooms including a specially designed water park, loose part environment for construction, and art space for clay work and fine art materials, children are free to wander from space to space engaging in their own interests.
Sustainability is a core focus at Little Scholars, much of our furniture and indoor equipment made from natural materials to our sustainability programs which include recycling, use of recycled resources, energy efficiency and water conservation, all embedded in daily routines of the service.
Families are welcome to join in on our excursions, story time or pop in throughout the day.
In further collaboration, the service implements its nutritious food policy through working with families. Educators actively promote healthy eating and eliminate the use of high sugar and salt and use mealtimes for intentional teaching about healthy foods. The centre has an open kitchen where children are able to watch the cooking process and even become involved in the preparation of meals.
QLD Government Approved Kindergarten
Little Scholars Nerang offers the Queensland Kindergarten Program with a University Trained and Bachelor Qualified Teacher.
The Program developed by the Queensland Studies Authority embraces the inclusive vision that “all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life.” The program focuses on enriching each child`s life and most importantly concentrating on the skills that our Children will need to start Prep.
We are really passionate about this program and equipping our boys and girls with as many skills as possible for their journey into big school. Our children are supported in developing letter and number recognition, science and math’s concepts, technology skills and social competence in this year prior to school.
A very important focus for us is ensuring our children are socially ready to start school and know how to form and maintain friendships.
Regular excursions are a big part of our program as well as our Famous Bush Kinder- a educational learning program outside of the classroom.
