Our curriculum supports a balance of intentional teaching, leaning though playing and spontaneous activities. As such our curriculum fosters many of the key elements of the Reggio Emilia Approach. We then combine this vision with the principles, practices and outcomes of the National Early Childhood Curriculum, the “Early Years Learning Framework” (EYLF). Its implementation provides an opportunity for the children to achieve the five learning outcomes:
Children have a strong sense of identity
Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
Children are confident and involved learners
Children are effective communicators
Our Educators create a monthly program, which is based on individual and group observations, children's interests, parent's and educators' input.
Our centre is unique in that we have a strong focus on Arts and Music. Music lessons thought the week are included in your fees, and carried out by a trained Educator.

Little Sprouts adheres to the National Quality Framework (NQF), which provides a national quality standard to ensure high quality and consistent early childhood education and care across Australia. The NQF assists parents in making informed decisions when choosing care for their child. Little Sprouts reflects on their service through our Quality Improvement Plan, displayed in the office.
