Our Special Interest Program

Here at Little Learners EDEC, we believe that children should be able to experience a wide variety of activities that will inspire their thinking and give them solid learning foundations.

We are delighted to offer our Special Interest Program which is provided at no additional cost for all of the children at our Centre.

The program is available for all ages and is inclusive, engaging, interactive and fun.

Our very own in-house specialists, the Educators, select activities that they are passionate about, drawing from their own cultural heritages, personal interests and hobbies.

Each activity has a theme, for example in Term Three we will be offering Noongar Culture and the theme will be "Dreamtime stories and art".

If you would prefer that your child does not participate, please let us know and we will arrange an alternative activity for them.

Since launching the program in 2016, our children have participated in a wide variety of activities such as:

  • Sustainability –Gardening, Composting, Worm Farms, Animal Husbandry & Noongar Bush Tucker
  • Yoga & Meditation
  • Numeracy & Literacy
  • Science
  • Learning about different Cultures: Noongar, Japanese, Indian, French, Columbian, Malaysian and Sri Lankan
  • Sports – AFL, Soccer, Cricket & Netball
  • Numeracy & Literacy
  • Nutrition
  • Learning foreign languages: Spanish, Malaysian, French, German & Sinhalese
  • AUSLAN Sign Language
  • Dance 
  • Music

Please note that there will still be lots of unstructured time outdoors in our awesome Naturescape playground - as the value of learning through unstructured play cannot be overestimated.
