Why children and educators love Little Sprouts
Designed for early learning
Little Sprouts is a sustainability program developed for the specific needs of children, educators and families of early learning and child care in Melbourne.
Program activities link to the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education and Care to support your centre’s educational and environmental strategies.
Fun educational methods
Our hands-on educational style combines science investigation with the creative arts – resulting in memorable, play-based sessions. Where else can you get a qualified scientist and a live musician in the same incursion?
No two early learning centres are the same, which is why we tailor our approach for each centre. We also cater for different types of learners and staff needs, so everyone can get involved.
Our program is based on behaviour-change approaches to sustainability – which means positive outcomes for not only the environment, but also long-term social, cultural and economic benefits for your centre and community.
You no longer have to do it all alone. Our expert team will provide friendly, face-to-face support to help your centre achieve sustainability and educational goals. Saving you time, energy and money.
