Our outdoor learning environment
Little Village is in the heart of Buderim Village on a peaceful one-acre property with views to the ocean and the mountains, centred around the original colonial homestead and seven new studios.
Children are actively learning while playing in green gardens with cubby houses, mud kitchens, sand and water play, bike paths, swings and slides - a child’s dream backyard.
Our Bush Kindy is an additional outdoor space that promotes physical development, problem-solving, team-building, cultural and environmental learning plus so much more.
Our picturesque village park, a short walk from our centre, is often visited as an excursion for activities from ballgames to bird-watching.
Our indoor learning environment
Our studios are designed for the unique needs of each age group with natural light, fresh air, timber furnishings and resources. From our baby nursery to our kindergarten studios, we have created a home away from home.
We have mindfully chosen inspiring toys and learning resources from around the world and mixed them with locally made timber toys, natural resources and vintage finds.
Each early learning studio is designed to create an engaging educational environment through interest areas; places for imaginative play, construction, numeracy and literacy, science, art and craft, music and movement.
Family Friendly Long Day Care
Little Village Buderim believes in supporting the needs of the whole family while providing high-quality long day care and including everything your baby or child needs so your day is a little easier.
Healthy home-style meals are prepared fresh daily by our qualified chef and included in our daily fees. Children and their educators share meals together in a home-like setting to encourage healthy life-long habits.
To create a ‘circle of communication’ with parents we use a secure parent communication app that allows us to share your child’s day with you. You can digitally check-in and give feedback and messages in real time, helping to build on your child’s learning and care. You can also manage casual bookings with our “Xplor" App.
Little Village offers care and learning for babies from six weeks to school age children. We have two Kindergarten Studios offering a government approved Kindergarten Program. We recommend a child attend a minimum of two days to participate fully in the Kindy Program.
