The aim of the program is provide high quality learning and childcare experiences for all children and families in our care.
This is achieved by combining the best elements from educational philosophies such as Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Traditional Early Learning, to deliver a program that offers the best possible experiences.
Through the development of an emergent curriculum lead by the children’s interest we will explore and learn about:
- Reading and writing
- The world around us.
We operate an open door policy here at Lilliputs and we encourage parents to be involved in their child’s program.
