About Us

We are offering a unique opportunity for your child to attend an exclusive private kindergarten. We offer small intimate learning groups of 12 children, with two enthusiastic, highly qualified and experienced educators. The underpinning philosophy of Lil Seeds Kindy is a combination of Reggio Emilia and the Forest Kindergarten movement, which encourages children to play and learn in a natural environment. The program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility and community promoted through exploration and discovery in a supportive, enriching environment.

In order to promote this philosophy we have a 12-seater van and will be embarking on excursions in the community, exploring local parks and reserves. Safety is a priority and each area has been researched and a full risk assessment completed.

While nature based play is an important part of our curriculum and makes significant contributions to literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, it is also designed to provide further opportunities “in house” to learn about the environment and sustainable practices such as gardening, cooking, waste control, electricity, and life cycles.
