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.

Easy participation

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?

Flexible approach

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.

Powerful results

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.

Personalised support

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.
