Little Starters Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Carrum Downs

Little Starters Early Learning and Kinder offers child care in Carrum Downs, and hosts a team of dedicated and caring educators ready to welcome your child to the wonderful world of learning. Your child’s natural sense of curiosity and imagination will be supported by our thoughtfully designed learning environments. Our educational curriculum strives to cater for children’s interests and build confident and active learners. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Little Starters Early Learning and Kinder.

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Melissa Lednar

Hi, my name is Melissa and I am currently the Centre Director here at Little Starters, and have been since mid-September 2017. I have been in the industry for 6 years, completing a range of roles including Room Leader, Assistant Director and Centre Co-Director. I have been in the role an Assistant Director for 2 and half years and Centre Director for nearly one year. I hold my Advanced Diploma in Community Sector Management and also my Diploma of Children’s services. I believe that every child learns and develop in a different way, making each day a new day full of wonders. I want to ensure that the centre is a safe and caring environment for all children and families providing them with the best quality care. It is a very rewarding position as at the end of the day knowing that you have played a small part in each family’s lives guiding them through their first few years.
