Cockburn Gazette - - YOUR GENERATION -

LIT­TLE Learn­ers owner and di­rec­tor Ken Scot­tHamil­ton says there has been a fan­tas­tic re­sponse from par­ents and the com­mu­nity to the cen­tre’s new na­ture-based play­ground.

“So many of them are de­lighted with the pos­i­tive im­prove­ments to the cen­tre since we took over in Au­gust last year,” he said.

“Most im­por­tantly, the chil­dren are fully en­gaged with all the ac­tiv­i­ties in the cen­tre and with the out­doors.”

Mr Scott-Hamil­ton said one par­ent told him the play­ground was her new best friend as her son now slept through the night be­cause he’d had so much fun and in­ter­ac­tion at Lit­tle Learn­ers.

“We are pas­sion­ate about ed­u­ca­tion and cre­at­ing dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences for the chil­dren,” he said.

“Stud­ies have proven that the first five years of a child’s life are the most in­for­ma­tive so we make sure there is some­thing for all of our chil­dren, from ba­bies through to kinder­garten­ers, who fol­low the na­tional curriculum.”

He said ed­u­ca­tors com­bine the Early Years Learn­ing Frame­work with their own pas­sions.

“This has re­sulted in ev­ery­thing from net­ball lessons to Thai danc­ing and cook­ing classes, as well as French and Span­ish lessons,” he said.

“There’s so much va­ri­ety and the chil­dren love it.”

Lit­tle Learn­ers is at 242 South Street, White Gum Val­ley.
