Little Twigs is a flexible, play-based childcare centre that inspires curiosity and learning in a warm and natural setting. We provide loving care for children aged 30 months to school age, ranging from 4 hours to full time, 5 days a week.
Choose which Program you would like your child to attend: FULL TIME includes 4 - 5 days per week, PART TIME includes 1 - 3 days per week, or our HALF DAY program is at least one 4hr time slot per week. If your child is enrolled in any of the above listed programs, you will be able to use our convenient FLEX DAYS, or we also offer DROP IN spaces for those seeking last minute childcare.
We offer an "Emergent Curriculum" based on the children's interests and incorporate aspects of nature in their play and learning. We strongly believe that learning and living in harmony with nature is the best way for our little ones to spend their days. The children attending Little Twigs spend a lot of time outdoors exploring what our natural world has to offer.
We have an incredible outdoor play-space that is filled with natural elements including log rounds, rocks, plants and grasses, sand, water, driftwood and more. The children continuously add materials that they find while out on their nature walks. We regularly take walks to the surrounding parks, the nearest beaches and the many trails and events that are easily accessible from our facility.
Along with our own outdoor space, we offer a very warm, bright and inviting indoor space that takes you back to being a child again. Inside we have an array of natural materials for the children to explore, as well as a large craft area, a quiet, cozy zone, and an amazing selection of wooden toys, games and puzzles. We believe that children learn through play and we love to play too.
A daily routine for the children attending Little Twigs Playcare is very important. Children learn from routine and they thrive in a repetitive environment, therefore at Little Twigs, we often repeat activities at certain times of day and repeat stories that they are told on a daily basis. By doing this, the children feel a sense of security knowing what to expect when they are attending Little Twigs for the day. They can participate, with confidence, in all of the daily activities.
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.
