Little Land Preschool & Early Learning Centre (Little Land) helps both children and families from all walks of life feel secure, respected and valued. The staff provide learning experiences for the children that cater to each child’s individual needs. 

Little Land has an extensive training program which requires all staff to undertake a minimum of 3 to 4 courses per year in areas such as first aid refresher, child protection, children with special needs and autism. Educators are currently undertaking diploma programs, with a comprehensive support program available for all staff including mentoring, collaboration and time to do assignments.

The staff collaborate ideas as a team at monthly meetings so they can update, support and encourage each other throughout their work and study. This training has improved employee knowledge and skills which gives them greater confidence when interacting with parents and meeting the demands of a challenging job.
