Little Souls is a small, family style centre that provides quality care and education for children between the ages of 2 - 6 years. We are open 5 days per week (Monday-Friday), 50 weeks per year, between the hours of 6:30am & 6:00pm. We provide three healthy and balanced meals each day. We understand how important the early years of learning are for children and aim to provide an engaging and comprehensive program for each individual child that attends.
Here at Little Souls we run an early intervention program for children with Autism alongside our early childhood program for typically developing children. The children with Autism that attend are included in the preschool room with typically developing children periodically throughout the day. We have found during our experience that this model has many benefits for the typically developing children that attend. Opportunities to learn that all children are different and how to interact with children at different developmental levels occur each day. Patience, empathy, confidence and understanding develop quickly in our typically developing children and they often go off to school as confident learners with strong leadership skills built through their consistent opportunity to be role models and leaders to the children in the early intervention program.
Here at Little Souls the foundation for our program is the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and you can find detailed information on our programming and planning here in our curriculum outline.
