Little Twigs is a sweet and gentle childcare centre that offers children aged 30 months to school age a Waldorf-inspired preschool curriculum in a warm and nurturing environment. The Waldorf-inspired program provides our children with a gentle transition from home to school. We provide morning or full day loving care to children on a part time or full time basis in our beautiful home-like setting. The space and the program nourish the children's senses, and inspire a sense of wonder and magic.
Each day's activities flow from one to the other in a seamless manner, creating a predictable rhythm to our days, weeks and months. Each day of the week brings about a particular task, such as drawing, painting, baking, felting, washing dishes, and crafting.
Play is an important part of our day. At Little Twigs, we believe that joyful play should be guided, but not directed. Our children are free to play, imagine, explore and create using our carefully selected wooden toys, cloths, silks, baskets, rocks, wood and dolls.
Outdoor play is essential in a child's life. Our daily rhythm includes extended outside time every morning and afternoon. Little Twig's beautiful, attached outdoor space is filled with natural elements, plants and gardens, a sandbox, a rain barrel, watering cans and more to support the children's play. We regularly take walks to the surrounding parks, the nearest beaches and the many trails and events that are easily accessible from our facility.
At Little Twigs Playcare we believe that "childhood is a journey, not a race". We truly value childhood and encourage creativity, imagination and learning through play. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or requests.
