Little Nippers Early Learning and Childcare provides children with high quality care and the opportunity to learn in a warm, supportive and stimulating environment. Our professional, qualified educators work together with the children and parents/carers, to create programs that cater for the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and cultural development of each child.
Early childhood is the time when a child develops their disposition for learning; when they cultivate the foundation skills and abilities that will carry them through life. We believe that every child deserves the best start possible and our role is to foster and facilitate this development by being responsive, thoughtful and deliberate in our educational planning and practice.
Our facility is a purpose designed childcare nestled within an idyllic bush setting yet only metres from the town centre of Merimbula. The constant song of bellbirds provides a tranquil background that helps children feel settled and calm while away from their families.
We aim to provide children with a secure homelike environment where they are able to build strong attachments to their educators and peers creating a sense of community and belonging.
To ensure families feel connected to their children’s care and education we provide daily learning stories via an electronic application called Storypark. This is an interactive program which makes learning more visible and family input possible. Little Nippers is a long day care centre committed to quality education and ongoing improvement with educator to child ratio’s and staff qualifications exceeding the national regulations.
