Welcome to Little Troopers Long Daycare Centre

We guide the development of our children across the best learning programs

We believe that each child is a unique individual who needs safe, secure, caring, and stimulating atmospheres in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. As educators, our desire is to help each child reach their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that supports risk-taking, experimentation, investigation and role play.

We believe the implementation of the Early Years Learning framework (EYLF) is crucial in bringing out the best in each individual child. We promote children’s learning by implementing many pedagogical practices. We believe in adopting holistic approaches, being responsive to children, incorporating intentional teaching into our curriculum, planning and implementing learning through play

Our Programs

At Little Troopers we provide a rich and engaging school readiness program to equip children and their parents for a smooth transition to the first year of school. Our play-based and fun approach helps create a solid foundation in emotional and social development, self-help skills and early literacy and numeracy.

From learning social skills through play to recognising letters and numbers, fine motor skills, turn-taking games and more, our comprehensive school readiness program gives children the confidence and skills they need to see them right through their school years.

The environment at Little Troopers consists of learning areas that promote children’s being, belonging and becoming as outlined in the early years learning framework (EYLF). Through interactive learning facilities we ensure that the children experience quality teaching and learning with a specific emphasis on play-based learning that recognises the importance of communication and language, including early literacy and numeracy.

Within the framework, children learn the concepts as they observe, investigate, discover, predict and create. Children develop literacy and numeracy skills throughout a variety of creative activities including painting, drawing, music, songs, stories, role play and more.

PreLit is a skills-based, early literacy preparation program for preschool children in the year before school. It is designed to complement a play-based learning environment and provides children with a sound foundation for learning to read.PreLit can be taught to a whole class, small groups or individually for all children in the year prior to entering formal schooling. It may also be suitable for children who come to school without the necessary prerequisite literacy skills in place.

PreLit can be delivered by preschool teachers and child care centre staff as well as teachers and parents who want to make sure their child is ready for school.

Bluebell Music is passionate about providing fun and meaningful musical experiences for children.

Classes are for children aged between 3 months and 4 years. During each class we focus on developing a love of music achieved through a selection of familiar songs and music activities, presented in an enjoyable and informal class setting.

Our experienced and energetic teachers create a caring environment in which children can begin their musical journey. Children, along with their parents or carer, will discover the key concepts of music through listening, singing, moving and improvisation.

We understand that not everyone can commit to the full term, so we are more than happy to accommodate casual attendance. For the maximum benefit for your child, we encourage regular attendance. Familiarity will help build your child’s confidence, enjoyment and level of interaction in the classes.

Our Environment

Our three separate outdoor play areas are designed to facilitate children’s exploration, learning and growth, in a safe and secure setting. Children experience a variety of physical activities that support their developmental growth and gross motor skills.

The lush leafy green parkland that surrounds our Centre is used for our local walking activities and excursions, where children learn to enjoy and experience the beauty of nature and develop physical activity habits that support healthy growth.

With great local primary schools and high schools in the vicinity, we are perfectly positioned to offer your child an enriching early education in a great setting.
